Four international musicians, four distinctive personalities, one string quartet. The Barbican Quartet, founded in London in 2015 and promoted by such renowned mentors as the Quatuor Ébène and Günter Pichler, won the First Prize and various special prizes at the 71st ARD International Music Competition in Munich. This will be their first appearance in Hitzacker, opening the Debut Series with their own “Ready.Set.Go!” program, perfectly reflecting their own unique style.

Audience Academy 1: Kuss Quartett with Wolf-Dieter Seiffert: Mozart A-Dur Streichquartett, KV 464

Tickets online

Musicologist Dr. Wolf-Dieter Seiffert is an authority on the historical development and editing of milestones in music history. He has particularly distinguished himself with the new Urtext edition of Mozart's string quartets at the Henle Verlag. In our popular lecture-concert series, together with the Kuss Quartet, Wolf-Dieter Seiffert explores Mozart's arguably most significant string quartet, which, unlike the "Dissonance Quartet," is not automatically the best-known.

Toru Takemitsu (1930–1996): “A Way A Lone” für Streichquartett

Garth Knox (*1956): Neues Werk (komponiert für das Marmen Quartet korrespondierend zu Janáčeks Streichquartett Nr. 2)
Leoš Janáček (1854–1928): Streichquartett Nr. 2 “Intime Briefe”

Typical for Hitzacker: Janacek's extremely personal late masterpiece "Intimate Letters" confronts a completely new quartet composed by the living Arditti legend Garth Knox, an enthusiastically received guest in Hitzacker last year. The Marmen Quartet is considered one of the top addresses in the profession, especially after winning competitions in Bordeaux and Banff. Founded in 2013 at the Royal College of Music, the Marmen Quartet were fellows of the Guildhall School of Music String Quartet Fellowship and studied at the Hannover University of Music, Theater and Media with Oliver Wille, as well as in London with Simon Rowland-Jones and John Myerscough (Doric Quartet).
