About Quatuor Modigliani:

The Quatuor Modigliani is a regular guest of the world’s top venues and the finest String Quartet & Chamber Music series. In the current and upcoming seasons, the quartet will be on tour in the US, South America, Japan, and extensively throughout most of Europe. Highlights include the Wigmore Hall in London, the Paris Auditorium du Musée du Louvre, The Morgan Library & Museum in New York, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Brussel Flagey, Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Munich Prinzregententheater, Tokyo’s Oji Hall and festivals such as the Salzburger Festspiele, the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, the Menuhin Festival Gstaad and the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In 2017 the Quatuor Modigliani was first the String Quartet to perform in the main Hall of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie.

In 2014, the Modigliani Quartet became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, a festival created in 1976 by Antoine Riboud and made famous through its former legendary artistic director Mstislav Rostropovich, after a pause of thirteen years. The joint efforts of the Evian Resort and the Modigliani Quartet achieved immediate success and the festival has now become once again one of Europe’s major and most publicized musical events of the Summer. The quartet has been recording for the Mirare label since 2008 and has released eight CDs in total, all multi-award-winning and receiving international critical acclaim. The last release was „Portraits”. The Modigliani Quartet has built true artistic friendships and are regularly playing with other renowned musicians such as Nicholas Angelich, Daniel Müller-Schott, Yefim Bronfman, Sabine Meyer, Beatrice Rana and Renaud Capuçon.

After fifteen years of building their own sound and profile, the Modigliani Quartet is now happy to pass on their experience to the next generation. In 2016 they created an Atelier within the Evian Festival and since November 2017 they have also been holding a series of masterclasses at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.
