In this primary season, politicians seeking to establish a broadly appealing, post-partisan identity might take their cue from ensembles such as the Enso String Quartet. Following a century in which the politics of musical style often dictated the aesthetic direction of composers and musicians, the Enso Quartet is among a growing number of chamber groups devoted not to any style or period, but simply to good music, superbly played. Co-founded in 1999 at Yale University by violinist Maureen Nelson and cellist Richard Belcher, the Enso Quartet has since been joined by violinist John Marcus and violist Melissa Reardon.
