Since its foundation in 2000, the Quartetto di Cremona has been regularly invited to perform at major music festivals in Europe, Asia, and North and South America.
Winners of the BBT Fellowship award in 2005, the ensemble also received the “Franco Buitoni Award” (2019) for their constant contribution to the promotion of chamber music in Italy and around the world.
The highlights of the past season included debut performances at the Rudolfinum in Prague and the CRR Concert Hall in Istanbul, as well as concerts in Germany, France, Scandinavia and at major Italian concert societies.
Their recording projects include a double CD dedicated to Schubert and to cellist Eckart Runge. The album was recorded with the Stradivarius instrument group called the “Paganini Quartet”, on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation (Tokyo). The same goes for Beethoven’s string quartets cycle: the eight volumes won prestigious awards (including Echo Klassik 2017 and ICMA 2018) and received numerous accolades from critics.
Members of the quartet are frequently invited to perform masterclasses in Europe, Asia, North and South America. In addition, they have been professors at the Walter Stauffer Academy in Cremona since 2011. They are also ambassadors of the international project “Friends of Stradivari” and honorary citizens of Cremona.
