Schubert2020-2028 - The String Quartets Project 2
Label: haenssler CLASSIC
Format: COMPACT DISC
Looking ahead to 2028 and the 200th anniversary of the composer’s death, the Alinde Quartet will annually release an album of Schubert string quartets for the next eight years, alongside a specially commissioned work. Finding the ideal sound world for Schubert’s quartets is by no means easy, yet the Alinde strikes a near-ideal balance between internal clarity and textural warmth, shone through by sparkling intonation. This Alinde Quartett has been warmly received at Europe’s most heralded festivals and halls, including Konzerthaus Berlin, the Kölner Philharmonie, Schleswig Holstein Musik Festival, Festepiele MecklenburgVorpommern, the Verbier Festival, Aldeburgh Residencies, Chamber Music European Meetings in Bordeaux, and Mozartfest Würzburg. In summer 2018, they participated in the Chamber Music Residency at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence. The four have been fortunate to have studied with two giants of the chamber music world: following their studies with Eberhard Feltz at the Musikhochschule “Hanns Eisler” Berlin, they entered the class of Professor Günther Pichler (Alban Berg Quartett) at the "Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia" Madrid. Always keen to dig more deeply and expand their palette, they began studying with Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartett) in Basel as of Fall 2018.
