Founded in 1946, this amazing group's current lineup has had only fifteen different members. The founding members were together until 1955 and the group only had two changes in the first twenty years.

How many music groups can match the personnel turnover rate of the Juilliard String Quartet. Founded in 1946, this amazing group's current lineup has had only fifteen different members. Many similar organizations failed to continue when changes in membership set in. The founding members were together until 1955 and the group only had two changes in the first twenty years.

In spite of personnel changes, the JSQ has been the recipient of four Grammys, all for "Best Chamber Music Performance", in 1966, 1972, 1978, and 1985.
