2019 marks the Artemis Quartett’s thirtieth year on the stage. They have gone through turbulent times, each time reinventing themselves afresh to take their place at the forefront of their field – a true testimony to the characteristic resilience and complexity of a string quartet. They will celebrate their anniversary in the Netherlands during the String Quartet Biennale, with the opening concert as high point: a striking programme featuring three substantial works.

Gregor Sigl is the quartet’s violist: ‘It is a groundbreaking challenge for us and definitely a high point; performing the final string quartet of two of the most significant composers of this genre in a single concert. The contrast could not be starker: Mozart’s final quartet radiates a boundless joie de vivre, while Bartok’s sixth string quartet expresses deep mourning.’
