The Paris based Quatuor Modigliani, which was founded in 2003, is a regular guest of the world’s top venues and finest String Quartet & Chamber Music series. It was the first string quartet ever performing in the big hall of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg in 2017. Since its formation, it has built true artistic friendships with other musicians such as N. Angelich, T. Tetzlaff, Y. Bronfman, B. Rana or R. Capuçon. In 2014, the Quatuor became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, one of Europe’s major summer musical events. The quartet has been recording for the Mirare label since 2008 and has released 10 award winning CDs since. The quartet’s next project, a CD featuring recordings of Tchaikovsky is expected to be released in season 2021/22.
Highlights of this season are tours through Germany, as well as a US-tour in March 2021. In December 2020 the Quatuor Modigliani celebrates the world premiere of the String Quartet ‘Split Apart’, which was composed specifically for them by the British composer Mark Anthony Turnage. Also performances with Veronika and Clemens Hagen at Auditorio Nacional de Música CNDM Madrid, Flagey in Brussels or at the Berlin Philharmonie, as well as concerts in Germany and Italy.
