The Michelangelo Quartet was formed by four musicians Distinguished as soloists, chamber musicians and teachers, who share an irresistible desire to play together the string quartet repertoire. Since their first concert season, they have toured regularly the Scandinavia, Benelux, the UK, Germany, Italy and Japan, giving concerts in major halls such as the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Paris, Tonhalle, Zürich, and London's Wigmore Hall. Festival appearances have included Edinburgh, Sion, Naantali, Hardanger, the Pablo Casals Festival, Prades, and the Delft and New Zealand Chamber Music Festivals. The critics have consistently praised the quartet for the collective virtuosity and experience of its members, as well as their musicality and intensity of feeling thus ranking the ensemble as one of the most interesting on the current musical scene.
