About the Quartet:
With 65 world premieres to its credit and 145 concert works played throughout the United States, South America, and Europe, the iconoclastic Beo String Quartet does what it loves best: playing classical repertoire, contemporary, rock, and experimental music. From the Latin “to make happy,” Beo started out as a lark. Two Mexican-American brothers, Jason Neukom and Sean Neukom, decided to record a song entitled “Happy, Happy,” composed by Sean—but they would need two more players. With the addition of Andrew Giordano and Ryan Ash, the Beo String Quartet was formed. Amid touring the world, composing, performing, recording, teaching, and having fun, Beo has since founded Beo Publishing, built a recording studio, and started its own recording label: NeuKraft Records.
