Leonkoro Quartet – crescendo

Nikloaj Lund

There is probably no string quartet whose career has been steeper in the past year than that of the Leonkoro Quartet.

The four musicians, who have been making music together since 2019, combine the highest technical skills with refreshingly new interpretations, captivating every listener. To the illustrious list of awards, in 2022 alone they added the Jürgen Ponto Foundation Music Prize, 1st prizes at the Wigmore Hall London International String Quartet Competition and the Quatuor à Bordeaux Competition, and the MERITO String Quartet Award. How fortunate that three of the members are current or former students of the UdK Berlin, and they are delighted to return to their place of study for a concert. String quartets from the 18th and 20th centuries will be performed, once again underscoring the versatility of this genre. An evening that celebrates two things: The pure, intimate and chamber music-like sound of strings and the extraordinary abilities of this quartet, which is only at the beginning of its career.
