The Washington Post on the Minetti Quartett

"Let's just say this upfront: The Minetti Quartett has a huge future, boasting thoughtful interpretations, beautiful ensemble work, crisp articulation and flawless technique -- not to mention the fact that the players are drop-dead gorgeous"
 
"it was simply a stunning and brilliant display of what string quartet playing is all about"

 Washington Post
 

Faure Quartett

The Faure Quartett gave successful performances this fall on the stages of the prestigious  Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, the Musikverein in Vienna, the alte Oper Frankfurt and at the  Schleswig Holstein and  Rheingau Musikfestivals.


 

Salzburg Chamber Soloists at Besançon Festival, France

From the first bares the ensemble reveals all the expressive richness of a string orchestra. It seams without limits thanks to the density of the works and the high levels of the interprets.
Led by a subtil mixture of authority and gentleness by their chef Lavard Skou Larsen.
Very interesting to observe the "boss". He plays as concertmaster but at the same time conducts with his bow when he has a few seconds free. Or with his looks and the expressions of his face when he has to execute the score.
Barber Adagio: Of a subtile melancholy, thanks to the exceptional tenderness of their bowtechnique on the strings."

MINETTI QUARTETT

The Minetti Quartett performed in November at the Berliner Philharmonie Hall: "the Minetti Quartett realized the music by Beethoven with a deep understanding, performing it with one breath, one string sound and with four souls." Der Tagesspiegel. The new Beethoven CD release received high critical acclaim in Europe.
 

Minguet Quartett and pianist Andreas Klein on US and Canada Tour

The Minguet Quartett and Pianist Andreas Klein joined forces in performing interesting programs with Glenn Gould's string quartet, Bach's Contrapunti, Bach Concerto, 1052, Mendelssohn and solo piano works by Busoni and Chopin: 

Portland: With the fine Minguet String Quartet acting as a chamber orchestra, Klein gave a reading that enthralled from start to finish.

Winnipeg:  Fantastic! Pianist and Minguet! More of such groups! Excellent piano playing. Very good playing altogether.
Very elegant playing. I have never heard the opening of the Mozart played so softly, nor the trio or the third movement played so finely.

Montgomery, AL: The Minguet Quartett and Andreas Klein gave a beautiful concert.

Washington, DC: The concerts were well received and the Minguet Quartett and Andreas played beautifully.  It was a pleasure having them at Dumbarton Oaks!

Abbodsford: It was a special and magical evening
