Schumann Quartet

Lauded as “personal and profound” (BBC Music Magazine), “among the best quartets in the world” (Süddeutsche Zeitung), and “one of the most exciting string quartets of the present day” (Fono Forum), the Schumann Quartet is having an exciting season highlighted by its three-year residency at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York City, which began back in December 2016. Furthermore, the quartet will go on tour in Israel and twice in the United States, give guest performances at festivals in Germany, Austria, France, the Netherlands, and Bulgaria, and perform concerts in London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Hamburg, and Berlin. The quartet’s current album, Intermezzo, has been hailed enthusiastically both at home and abroad and is celebrated as a worthy successor to its award-winning Landscapes album. Among other prizes, the latter received the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik and five Diapasons and was selected as Editor’s Choice by BBC Music Magazine.
