“It’s a rare blend: breadth of sound and capriciousness combined with perfect tuning and ensemble has the players sounding absolutely of one voice… Nothing less than life-affirming.” – Gramophone
Winner of the 2019 Franco Buitoni Award, the Cremona Quartet is noted for its lustrous sound, refined musicianship, and stylistic versatility. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in the 2020-21 season, the quartet was established in 2000 at the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona, Italy. Since then, the Cremona Quartet has toured extensively in Europe, the United States, South America, and Asia, appeared at leading festivals, and performed regularly on radio and television broadcasts. The Cremona’s extensive repertoire encompasses key masterworks—Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert—and essential twentieth-century contemporary literature by Debussy, Schoenberg, Webern, Bartók, and Shostakovich along with contemporary works by Golijov, Lacheman, Fabio Vacchi, and Silvia Colasanti.
