Internationally renowned for their “lyrical sound” (Strad), the Cremona Quartet return to NI, with a programme featuring works by Beethoven and Mozart.

The Italian quartet’s list of accolades is vast. They have graced the stages of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, won numerous international competitions (Vittorio Veneto Competition, Cremona International Competition, Web Concert Hall Competition) and have even been awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship. A busy touring schedule has seen recent engagements in the USA, China, Japan, and all across Europe.

The quartet has released several recordings on the Audite label to critical acclaim, with Gramophone Magazine describing them as “nothing less than life-affirming”.

We are delighted to present the Cremona Quartet on tour, and we recommend early booking to hear this excellent ensemble in a venue near you.

 “They have a playing style that is instantly recognisable…in a world that is positively crawling with string quartets…the Quartetto di Cremona, to my mind and perception, are just about the top of the heap” Herald Scotland
