Founded in Berlin in April 2014, the ORBIS Quartet was awarded the second prize only five months later at the International Johannes Brahms Competition in Pörtschach, Austria playing their repertoire standing and from memory.
The quartet has been coached by the Artemis Quartet in Berlin. Currently the quartet is studying with Prof. Rainer Schmidt at Mozarteum Salzburg. In May 2015 it was accepted to the ECMA (European Chamber Music Academy) Vienna as Aspirants.
The ensemble has played at Salzburg Chamber Music Festival and for the German President J. Gauck.
Beside the classical works the quartet is currently working on expanding it's crossover repertoire. ORBIS' speciality is singing a cappella and playing their instruments at the same time.
