Quartetto di Cremona



Quartetto di Cremona

Since its formation in 2000, the Quartetto di Cremona has established a reputation as one of the most exciting chamber ensembles on the international stage. Regularly invited to perform at the most important festivals and concert seasons across Europe, North and South America, and the Far East, the Quartet has garnered universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike for its high level of interpretive artistry. They are a regular feature on radio and television broadcasts around the world, performing their extensive repertoire which ranges from early Haydn to contemporary music.

The 2017/18 season included successful debuts in Amsterdam (Concertgebouw, Muziekgebouw), Hamburg (Laeiszhalle) and Edinburgh, as well as tours in Sweden and Denmark, USA and Canada, Japan. 2018/19 noteworthy engagements include performances in Berlin (Konzerthaus), Hamburg (Elbphilharmonie), in Stockholm, Geneva, Manchester, Amsterdam, Valencia as well as Cartagena de Indias, Vancouver, New York and at the major Italian concert halls and seasons.

The Quartetto has collaborated with numerous artists of international renown, including Lawrence Dutton, Edicson Ruiz, Andrea Lucchesini, Eckart Runge, David Orlovsky and the Emerson String Quartet.

Frequently invited to present master classes across Europe and the United States, since autumn of 2011 the Quartet was assigned the professorship at the prestigious “Walter Stauffer Academy” in Cremona (String Quartet Advanced Master).

The Quartetto di Cremona is an ambassador for the international “Friends of Stradivari” project: thanks to the network, at the moment they are playing on the Stradivarius “Paganini Quartet” on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation:

  • Cristiano Gualco - Stradivarius 1727 Violin “Paganini”
  • Paolo Andreoli - Stradivarius 1680 Violin “Paganini”
  • Simone Gramaglia - Stradivarius 1731 Viola “Paganini”
  • Giovanni Scaglione - Stradivarius 1736 Cello “Paganini”

The Quartet is also kindly supported by the Kulturfond Peter Eckes with four fabulous instruments (violin Giovanni Battista Guadagnini; violin Paolo Antonio Testore; viola Gioachino Torazzi; cello Dom Nicola Amati) and they are testimonial for Thomastik-Infeld Strings.
