"Individual virtuosity combines with a joy for shared music-making each time they take the stage. This quartet has proven to be a remarkable voice for the contemporary composer. I consider them to be a genuine "benchmark changer". Audiences are immediately struck by their energy, passion, and love of sharing their individual talents as a single voice. They need to be heard!"

Great new review from our concert at The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, FL on March 20, 2019 in the Palm Beach Daily News!
Here are some excerpts:
“…a jaw-dropping display of virtuosity in a concert of string quartet transcriptions, presented completely by memory.”
“Like most great works of art, the music held up well in its new sonic clothing, due to the quartet’s impeccable intonation and very close attention to the subtleties of phrasing.”
“Samuel Barber’s “Adagio” from the String Quartet in B Minor has been transcribed for countless configurations of instruments. But in the hands of a saxophone quartet, it was especially powerful. For some in the audience, it was a profoundly moving few minutes.”
“The Sinta Quartet, recognized as one of the finest ensembles of its type, not only amazed with stunningly virtuosic technique and virtually perfect intonation, but also by its profound attention to the music.”
