Yale Quartet

The Yale Quartet was a string quartet based at Yale University composed of musicians in the Yale School of Music and formed and led by Broadus Erle (photo...formerly of the New Music Quartet) from the time he arrived in Yale in 1960. It is especially noted for a set of recordings of the late Beethoven quartets, made during the 1960s and 1970s.When Erle died prematurely in Spring 1977, the quartet disbanded, although the violinist Syoko Aki & violoncellist Aldo Parisot taught at Yale. The Tokyo Quartet has been the quartet-in residence at Yale for most of the period since Erle's death. The Yale Quartet's recordings of the late Beethoven works have been reissued on compact disc (twice), as has their recording with André Previn of the Brahms.
