The Santa Fe Concert Association presents The Signum Quartet. The quartet has made its mark on the international scene by virtue of their energetic and lively interpretations and have established themselves as one of the most exciting young ensembles of its generation.
When you hear The Signum Quartet perform Haydn, it is a revelation, and an experience one doesn’t always associate with Haydn. These players understand music from the inside out.
Hailing from Germany and founded in 1994, the ensemble is currently supported by the stART Programme of the Bayer Cultural Affairs Department (Bayer Kultur) and the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme.
Intensive studies with the Alban Berg Quartet, the Artemis Quartet and the Melos Quartet as well as master classes and collaborations with György Kurtág, Walter Levin, Alfred Brendel, Leon Fleisher and Jörg Widmann have shaped the artistic development of the Signum Quartet. Their numerous prizes include Deutscher Musikwettbewerb, Premio Paolo Borciani, ICMC Hamburg, and London International String Quartet Competition, where it was furthermore awarded the coveted audience prize.
Concert appearances have included Madrid, Basel, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Essen Bonn and festivals in Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau and Aix-en-Provence. At the invitation of the Goethe Institute, the ensemble has undertaken extended concert tours in Asia, Middle America and Africa.
Concerts by the four musicians have been broadcast nationally and internationally and they released a CD in January 2012 by Capriccio of quartet movements of Schubert, Wolf, Puccini, Orff, Webern, Rihm and Ives.
