Quartetto di Cremona in concert

Founded in 2000 while the members were students at the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona, Italy, The Quartetto di Cremona is rapidly becoming one of the most interesting and dynamic chamber music ensembles of their generation. The Strad Magazine noted their “extremely mature and lyrical sound”, the Süddeutsche Zeitung described them as “one of the most exciting quartets of their generation” and the London Times has listed them as one of the up-and-coming foursomes to watch.

The Quartetto di Cremona have won top prizes at international chamber music competitions and have an illustrious performance record; they have also given master classes in various European countries. Learn more about them through their website, www.quartettodicremona.com.
