 „“A fantastic ensemble that’s ‘still on fire’, innovative, and hell-bent on high-quality music making.

.“

(Enjott Schneider)

These four young musicians from Munich, possessed of a charismatic and authentic stage presence, set audiences aflame with their spark-throwing enthusiasm and burning passion for this rare form of chamber music.

The ensemble’s activities in 2013 were marked by important international accomplishments: 1st prizes in Munich (in addition to the Audience Prize), Gioia del Colle (Italy), Moscow (Russia), 3rd prize in Chieri (Italy) followed by 2nd prize in Berlin in 2014, 1st prize in Magnitogorsk (Russia) in 2015 and 1st prize in Berlin in 2016.

Furthermore the ensemble was honored with the Young Artist Prize of the State of Bavaria 2016 and awarded with the Scholarship of the Theodor-Rogler-Foundation, a Scholarship of Music by the City of Munich and a scholarship of the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung.

The ensemble was founded in 2009 at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, and studied chamber music under the Artemis Quartet with additional instruction from Koryun Asatryan and Prof. Berger in Munich. The quartet has been a member of the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA, Prof. Beyerle, Prof. Meissl e.a.) since 2014.

They take the world’s stages by storm: After their international debut in the Great Hall of Tchaikovsky Conservatory Moscow and the concert in Wigmore Hall, the invitation to play in Berlin Philharmonie in 2017 marks a new milestone in their career.

chambertalk

Sol Gabetta, Martin Grubinger, David Garrett, Anna Netrebko, Lang Lang… these are almost brand names of the classical world. They provide us with a backstage view and insights into an artist’s daily life through interviews, newspapers and in their social media feed.
But what about chamber music? It’s considered as inaccessible, complex and elitist. But not even close! These are of course real people with all their hopes, doubts and dreams. A true cosmos of stories!
In our new video series chamberTALK we meet them all: the most promising European ensembles, global super stars and the great, old masters! Together we’ll discuss the main topics of chamber music, reveal the funniest and strangest stories of life in an ensemble and we might even uncover secrets from time to time.
Remember: on the first of every other month there will be a new episode of chamberTALK.
Always new, always different!
One thing, however, will never be missing: our SaxChallenge!
