The Cleveland Quartet, disbanded in 1996, recently won a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for their Telarc "Farewell Recording"; (CD-80415) of the Corigliano String Quartet (commissioned by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for the farewell tour of the ensemble).

The Quartet members are now pursuing individual careers, as performers, teachers, and coaches of other soloists and ensembles. They recorded the complete Beethoven cycle for Telarc during 1995. With the release of this recording, the series, which has been critically acclaimed since its inception, is complete.
