Biography

The Signum Quartet has been playing in its present formation since 2007. From 2009 - 2012 it was supported by the stART Programme of the Bayer Cultural Affairs Department (Bayer Kultur), and from 2011 - 2013 in the the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme.

Intensive studies with the Alban Berg Quartet, the Artemis Quartet and the Melos Quartet as well as masterclasses and collaborations with György Kurtág, Walter Levin, Alfred Brendel , Leon Fleisher and Jörg Widmann have shaped the artistic development of the Signum Quartet, a laureate of numerous prizes (Deutscher Musikwettbewerb, Premio Paolo Borciani, ICMC Hamburg, London International String Quartet Competition, where it was furthermore awarded the audience prize.)

Chamber music partners of the quartet include Jörg Widmann, Igor Levit, Leonard Elschenbroich, Adrian Brendel, Christian Ihle Hadland, Eckart Runge (Artemis Quartet), Mark Simpson, Carolin Widmann and the actor Dominique Horwitz.

Concert appearances have led the Signum Quartet to international podia such as the Hamburger Laeiszhalle, the Liederhalle Stuttgart, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Philharmonie Luxemburg, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Berliner Philharmonie to the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival, the Aldeburgh Festival, the Festival Aix-en-Provence and the BBC Proms.

At the invitation of the Goethe Institute, the young ensemble has undertaken extended concert tours which have hitherto seen them perform in Asia, Middle America and Africa.
