„The Notos Quartet is a fantastic ensemble!”

- Zubin Mehta

The Notos Quartet is regarded as one of the "outstanding chamber music formations of our time“ (Fono Forum 9/2017). Since its foundation in 2007 the Notos Quartet has won six first prizes as well as numerous special prizes at international competitions in England, Holland, Italy and China. Above that in 2017 the quartet was awarded the ECHO Klassik as newcomer of the year, at the time a prestigious prize that in its history had only been given to ensembles on the rarest of occasions.

The Notos Quartet’s vision is to perform the well-known masterpieces, to reveal lost and forgotten treasures, and to champion the new compositions for the unique genre of the piano quartet. This is evident on the ensemble’s debut album „Hungarian Treasures“ released by Sony Classical/RCA in February of 2017. It includes the world premiere recording of Béla Bartók’s Piano Quartet, a rediscovery for which the ensemble received international acclaim.

The Notos Quartett's second recording by SONY Classical - a co-production with Deutschlandfunk Kultur - has been released in March 2021. This CD is dedicated entirely to the great Romantic composer Johannes Brahms and features the famous Piano Quartet in G minor and the Symphony No. 3 in an arrangement by Andreas Nikolai Tarkmann created especially for the Notos Quartett.
