Leipziger Streichquartett

"The finest Brahms playing one could hope to hear" - "These four instruments are like a breath of fresh air on the chamber music scene."


“Rich, mellow, unadulterated beauty”

New York Times

The Neue Züricher Zeitung described the Leipzig String Quartet as "one of the towering and most versatile quartets of our time". The ensemble was founded in 1988 by four members -three of whom were first chairs- of the famous Gewandhaus Orchestra. The Quartet has toured extensively throughout Europe, in Israel, Africa, North and South America, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia, including appearances at many of the major festivals. Having released nearly 100 CD recordings of repertoire from Mozart to Cage, the Quartet has received tremendous recognition for each of these projects. The Quartet enjoys collaborating with other artists to enrich and expand its already immense repertoire of 400 works by 150 composers. Regular masterclasses at the world's finest universities complete their activities.
