The Paris based Modigliani Quartet is a regular guest of the world’s top venues and finest string quartet and chamber music series. In 2014, the Modigliani Quartet became Artistic Directors of the Rencontres Musicales d’Evian, a festival created in 1976 by Antoine Riboud and made famous through its former legendary artistic director Mstislav Rostropovich. The joint efforts of the Evian Resort and the Modigliani Quartet achieved immediate success and the festival has now become again one of Europe’s major and most publicized Summer musical events.
“One of today’s best quartets in the world … Balance, transparency, symphonic comprehension, confident style, their performance reached a very high and inspiring level.” — Harald Eggbrecht in Süddeutsche Zeitung
