THE JUILLIARD STRING QUARTET

Autographed 8 x 10 glossy publicity photograph of the quartet between 1958 and 1966. The photograph has been signed in order left to right by first violinist Robert Mann, second violinist Isidore Cohen, cellist Claus Adam and violist Raphael Hillyer.

The Juilliard String Quartet, one of the top quartets of the 20th Century was formed in 1946. The photograph features the second generation of the quartet, the only original members at this time was violinist Robert Mann (1920-2018) and violist Raphael Hillyer (1914-2010). Mann played with the group until 1997, Hillyer in 1969. Violinist Isidore Cohen (19222005) joined in 1958 and performed with the group until 1966 where he would go on to perform with the Beaux Arts Trio. Cellist Claus Adam (19171983) joined in 1955 and remained through 1974 when he was replaced by his pupil Joel Krosnik. Adam went on to become a full-time composer.

The Quartet was founded by Juilliard President, composer William Schuman in 1946, to become a brand and good will public ambassador for the Conservatory. They went on beyond his wild expectations to become one of the leading string quartets of the 20th Century. They won their first Grammy for their Bartok Six String Quartet recordings with this configuration in 1966.

We have taken the light signatures into consideration in the price.
