The Michelangelo Quartet was formed in 2002 by four musicians distinguished as soloists, chamber musicians and teachers, who share an irresistible desire to play together the greatest repertoire of all.

Since their first concert season, 2003/4, they have toured regularly in Scandinavia, Benelux, the UK, Germany, Italy and Japan, giving concerts in major halls such as the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Paris, Tonhalle Zürich, and London’s Wigmore Hall.

Festival appearances have included Edinburgh, Sion, Naantali, Hardanger, the Pablo Casals Festival, Prades, and the Delft and New Zealand Chamber Music Festivals.

During the 5 years of its existence, critics have consistently praised the quartet for the collective virtuosity and experience of its members, as well as their musicality and intensity of feeling. They have recently embarked on a project to record all the Beethoven Quartets.The Quartet has performed the complete Beethoven quartets cycle in Scotland in the season 2012/2013 and in Japan 2015.
