Aris Quartett-Newsblog

A furious start to 2023

In the 14 years of our existence, we have rarely had such an intense, fulfilling and packed start to the new year:

We started with the legendary chamber music week at Schloss Elmau with the great Tabea Zimmermann (viola), followed by performances with Daniel Müller-Schott (cello) and Kit Armstrong (piano) - including the world premiere of Armstrong's new piano quintet at the Alte Oper Frankfurt. Special quartet highlights were, of course, our concerts at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Konserthuset Stockholm and our debut at the Philharmonie Cologne.

There is only little time to take a deep breath: already in February we are going on our first US tour, with concerts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and many more! 


Keep your fingers crossed for us, stay tuned and have a look at our Instagram channel!
