Videos of Borromeo String Quartet performances reveal something unique about the members of this award-winning ensemble: They read music from laptop computers onstage. In addition to their use of technology, the four instrumentalists are known for reinterpreting classical works and promoting pieces by 20th- and 21st-century composers. The Quartet-in-Residence at the New England Conservatory in Boston has graced stages at notable venues such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Cellist Yeesun Kim, violist Mai Motobuchi, and violinists Kristopher Tong and Nicholas Kitchen charm music connoisseurs with works by Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Hungarian-born composer György Ligeti.
