5. Chamber Concert 2022: Alinde Quartett

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

Boccherini, Pauels & Schubert

The Alinde Quartet from Cologne has become a permanent fixture among the outstanding, established string quartets.

Trained by Professor Günter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet) at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid and Eberhard Feltz at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music in Berlin, among others, the Alinde Quartet now performs at renowned festivals such as the Verbier Festival, Aldeburgh Residencies, Chamber Music European Meetings in Bordeaux and the Mozartfest Würzburg. In summer 2018, it was part of the Chamber Music Residency at the Aix-en-Provence Festival. It was also a guest at the Konzerthaus Berlin, the WDR Funkhaus Cologne and the Kölner Philharmonie. For Hänssler Classic, the four musicians will record all of Franz Schubert's string quartets in an 8-year project until 2028.
