“One of today’s best quartets in the world...Balance, transparency, symphonic comprehension, confident style, their performance reached a very high and inspiring level ” —Süddeutsche Zeitung

Known for their energy, passion, and conviction of its interpretations, the Paris-based musicians behind the Modigliani Quartet bring a stylish precision to their performances of the most exquisite chamber music in the string quartet repertoire.

Formed in 2003, the Modigliani Quartet performs regularly at the world’s top chamber music venues, touring America, Japan, Korea, China and European countries. In 2017, they made their Berlin Philharmonic debut and returned to London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Paris Philharmonie, Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Salzburg’s Mozarteum, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, and Tokyo’s Oji Hall. In 2014, the quartet became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, created in 1976 by Antoine Riboud and made famous by its former artistic director, Mstislav Rostropovich.
