‘The Notos Quartet is a fantastic ensemble’ declared the great conductor Zubin Mehta on his first encounter with its musicianship. Similarly enthusiastic plaudits have greeted the Notos Quartet’s performances and recordings since its formation in 2007. The German music review Fono Forum lauded the Quartet as one of the ‘outstanding chamber music formations of our time’ and praised the musicians for their ‘profound musicality that goes straight to the heart.’ To an already long list of prizes and awards, the Notos Quartet added the highly prestigious ECHO Klassik Award of the German music critics as ‘Newcomer of the Year’ in 2017.
The year of 2018 includes debut performances at the Philharmonie Berlin, Konzerthaus Vienna, Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Tonhalle Zurich and the International House of Music in Moscow. In addition to appearances at the major festivals and in the leading concert halls throughout Europe such as the Wigmore Hall London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and Teatro la Fenice Venice, the Notos Quartet regularly travels extensively outside Europe, performing and giving masterclasses.
