Quartetto di Cremona

The Quartetto di Cremona, founded in 2000 while the members were students at the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona, Italy, is rapidly becoming one of the most interesting and dynamic chamber music ensembles of their generation.  The ensemble studied with Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Giuranna, and Rocco Filippini at the Accademia Walter Stauffer, and continued their studies with Hatto Beyerle of the Alban Berg Quartet.

The Quartetto di Cremona received a Borletti – Buitoni Trust Fellowship in 2005 and have won top prizes at international chamber music competitions.  In 2009, the Quartetto di Cremona made its Decca recording debut of Boccherini Flute Quintets (with Andrea Griminelli) and in 2011, released their second recording for Decca of Fabio Vacchi's String Quartets.  Recordings under other labels include the Brahms and Dvorák Piano Quintets (with pianist Filippo Gamba), string quartets by Haydn, Bartók, Borodin, Brahms, and Schubert.  They have most recently issued "Italian Journey" in November 2012, dedicated to the music of Italian composers.  From July 2012 and over the next two seasons, they will record the complete Beethoven String Quartets for the German label Audite.

The Quartetto di Cremona has performed around the world at concert halls and international music festival such as the Konzerthaus in Berlin, Beethovenhaus and the Beethovenfest in Bonn, Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Wigmore Hall in London, Salle Gaveau in Paris, Santa Cecilia in Rome, the Torino-Milan (Mi-To) Festival, the Turku Festival in Finland, and the Perth Festival in Australia.  During the 2011 – 2012 season, they also toured China and South Korea for the first time.  They collaborate regularly with artists such as Angela Hewitt, Ivo Pogorelich, Andrea Lucchesini, Lilya Zilberstein, Cédric Tiberghien, Pieter Wispelwey, and Bruno Giuranna.

The Quartetto di Cremona are the Quartet-in-Residence at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, and are Artists-in-Residence at the Società del Quartetto of Milan where they are involved in projects that will culminate with the complete cycle of the Beethoven quartets in 2014 for the 150th anniversary of the Societa del Quartetto.  They currently hold professorships at the Accademia Walter Stauffer and have also taught at the Paganini Conservatory in Genoa.
