Strebi Stiftung Luzern - Partner «Debut»-Reihe


The Adelphi Quartet is actually a kind of Europe in miniature. The four members come from four different countries: Belgium, Spain, England, and Germany. They studied with the Hagen Quartet at the Salzburg Mozarteum and were significantly shaped by the chamber music guru Eberhard Feltz, the cellist Valentin Erben, and the composer György Kurtág. This was promptly reflected in such competition successes as their wins at the Wigmore Hall Competition in London, the Premio Paolo Borciani in Italy, and the Heidelberg Spring String Quartet Festival. “What unifies us?” asks the quartet; naturally, they know the answer: “Spontaneity, fun, doubt, perfection, stress, adrenaline, basic trust, fear, joy, madness, and, again and again: music, music, music.” There will be no shortage of that at their Lucerne debut. The Adelphi Quartet has devised a sophisticated program, with the founding father of the genre, Joseph Haydn, at the start and a classic of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten, at the end. In between, the four musicians will juxtapose the Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso in a dialog with two world premieres. That’s something for music lovers who are curious!
