Since 2013, the Gesualdo String Quartet has been the Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Notre Dame where its duties combine performance with teaching and other outreach activities.
Members include founder and violinist Tricia Park (ND’s full-time violin faculty), Robin Scott (violinist), Maurycy Banaszek (violist) and Andrew Janss (cellist).
Named after Carlo Gesualdo, a composer of the late Renaissance who is noted for his expressive madrigals and sacred music, the Quartet musicians are selected from the top ranks of young musicians who are active and embarking on promising performing careers and are graduates of such top institutions as the Juilliard School and New England Conservatory of Music. The Gesualdo Quartet plays the full range of chamber music with a particular interest in commissioning new work and working closely with composers.
