Bourgie Hall presents

Modigliani Quartet

Founded in 2003, the Modigliani Quartet is one of today’s most sought-after sting quartets. During this concert, the ensemble will perform a diverse repertoire including works by Mozart and Beethoven as well as a Canadian premiere by Marc-Anthony Turnage.

“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

A year after their founding, the Modigliani Quartet won three First Prizes successively at the Eindhoven International Competition (2004), the Vittorio Rimbotti in Florence (2005) and the prestig-ious Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York (2006). Following studies with the Ysaÿe Quartet and masterclasses with Walter Levin and Gyorgy Kurtag, the Modigliani Quartet were invited to work with the Artemis Quartet at the Berlin Universität der Künste.

In addition to annual tours in the United States and in Asia, the quartet’s numerous European tours have brought them to Wigmore Hall, the Paris Philharmonie, the Théâtre des Champs- Elysées, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Saint-Petersburg Philharmonia and the Elbphil-harmonie in Hamburg.

After reviving the Rencontres Musicales Evian in 2014, of which they assured the artistic direction for 8 years, the quartet was entrusted with the artistic direction of the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition in 2020. As part of their festival “Vibre!”, the quartet counts some of the great-est quartets and chamber music ensembles amongst their guests artists. Through masterclasses and workshops, the festival provides an ideal environment to work with and mentor the young gen-eration, a mission at the heart of the quartet’s activities. The quartet is also the founder of the Saint-Paul-de-Vence Festival and the Arcachon Chamber Music Festival, both created in 2011.
