Quartetto di Cremona



Quartetto di Cremona

The oustanding musicians of "Quartetto di Cremona" - Cristiano Gualco, violin; Paolo Andreoli, violin; Simone Gramaglia, viola; Giovanni Scaglione cello - perform at the Italian Cultural Institute a program that includes: G.Verdi, Quartetto in mi minore and L. van Beethoven, Quartetto n.14 in do diesis minore op.131 (no intermission).

Since its formation in 2000, the Quartetto di Cremona has established a reputation as one of the most exciting chamber ensembles on the international stage. Regularly invited to perform in major music festivals in Europe, North and South America, and Far East, they garner universal acclaim for their high level of interpretive artistry.

Noteworthy recent recording projects include the double CD dedicated to Schubert, released in Spring 2019 and featuring cellist Eckart Runge. The Schubert CD was recorded with the Stradivarius set of instruments named “Paganini Quartet”, on kind loan from the Nippon Music Foundation (Tokyo). The album attracted high levels of acclaim in the international press, which unanimously considers the Quartetto di Cremona as the true heir of the Quartetto Italiano. Same goes for Beethoven’s string quartets cycle, completed in 2018 for Audite: the eight volumes won prestigious awards (including Echo Klassik 2017 and ICMA 2018) and received numerous recognitions from specialized critics.
