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, South America, the United States 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 (RAI, WDR, BBC, VRT, SDR, ABC) performing their extensive repertoire which ranges from early Haydn to contemporary music. 2017 will mark the release of the final volume in their complete recording of the Beethoven quartets, on the German label Audite.

The Quartetto di Cremona will make its debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam during the 2017-18 season, and will return to the
new Muziekgebouw in January 2018 for the prestigious String Quartet Biennale. The season will also include tours of the United States, China, Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom. Recent and upcoming noteworthy engagements include performances in Hamburg, in Vancouver, Zurich, Stockholm, Geneva and Madrid, as well as ongoing relationships with the major Italian concert halls
and seasons. They have collaborated with numerous artists of international renown, including Lawrence Dutton, Edicson Ruiz, Andrea Lucchesini, Antonio Meneses and the Emerson String Quartet. Frequently invited to present masterclasses across Europe and the United States, since autumn of 2011 the quartet has directed the prestigious Master’s program for professional and advanced string quartets at the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona. The Quartetto di Cremona is an ambassador for the international “Friends of Stradivari” project and for Thomastik-Infeld Strings. In November of 2015 they were awarded honorary citizenship of the city of Cremona.
