Aris Quartett

Musical prelude · 2 PM

Founded in 2009 in Frankfurt am Main, the musicians of the Aris Quartett perform on the world’s great stages: the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Philharmonie de Paris, Konzerthaus Wien, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, BBC Proms, and San Francisco Chamber Music Society will be presenting the Aris Quartett.

After studying with Günter Pichler of the Alban Berg Quartet in Madrid, Aris’ international breakthrough came early on thanks to numerous first prizes at renowned competitions. The Aris Quartett attracted much attention after winning the highly endowed Chamber Music Prize of the Jürgen Ponto Foundation in addition to five prizes at the ARD International Music Competition in Munich. Having been named New Generation Artists by the BBC, ECHO Rising Stars by the European Concert Hall Organization, and winning the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, the Aris Quartet has also received some of the most prestigious international awards for young musicians.

The foursome have released five highly acclaimed CD productions to date, the most recent in autumn 2020 in cooperation with Deutschlandfunk and BBC Radio 3, featuring works by Johannes Brahms. The Aris Quartett is sponsored by the Anna Ruths Foundation, the Wilfried and Martha Ensinger Foundation, and the Irene Steels-Wilsing Foundation.
