Reviews

★★★★★

 

They played [Brahms’s] first quartet with restless intensity but with a hint of sweetness behind the severity, sounding both warm and threatening. I suspect the composer would have been pleased.

About the Agate Quartet

Formed in 2016, the Paris-based Quatuor Agate studied at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin with Eberhard Feltz, in Paris under the guidance of Mathieu Herzog, and with the Quatuor Ebène at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich. In 2021, they were prize-winners at the YCAT International Auditions.

Highlights this season include debut recitals at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Alte Oper Frankfurt and Britten-Pears Arts in Aldeburgh.  They return to Wigmore Hall and the Lammermuir Festival (in Scotland), and collaborate with the Modigliani Quartet at the TauberPhilharmonie and the Diotima Quartet at the Lange Nacht der Streichquartette in Munich.  In 2023 they record the complete Brahms Quartets for Appassionato Records.
