Quartetto di Cremona

Join us on February 29th for an extraordinary concert featuring the internationally acclaimed Quartetto di Cremona!

 

Since their formation in 2000, this chamber ensemble has captivated audiences worldwide with their exceptional interpretive artistry. With performances in prestigious venues like the Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw, and Elbphilharmonie, they have received numerous prestigious awards and universal acclaim for their long-standing tradition of performing excellence.

 

“The Cremona’s performance was distinguished by splendid balance, abundant colour and a relaxed mastery of all the musical elements.” – The Strad

 

“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

 

“The Cremona Quartet completes its Beethoven series with a fine coupling, combining exemplary technique and intonational purity with an interpretive acuity that strips away 19th-century rhetoric while avoiding the pitfalls of sounding merely ‘historically informed’.” 

– The Strad

 

“Quartetto di Cremona’s magnificent survey of Beethoven’s Complete String Quartets moves securely and unquestionably into mastery... such warm playing; such perfection on a silver disc; what a glory this is.” – The Herald

Quartetto di Cremona first performed in Lincoln Center in 2022 and debuted in Carnegie Hall in 2023. 

 

Their FREE debut in Friends of Chamber Music's series at A&M United Methodist Church in College Station is an event not to be missed!
