ABOUT AGATE QUARTET

“The Agate were vivid, they were strong, subtle, startling, they were humbly and searingly superb.” – Sussex World

“The playing was quite magical” – Edinburgh Music Review

Formed in 2016, the Paris-based Agate Quartet 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, and collaborate with the Modigliani Quartet at the Tauber Philharmonie and the Diotima Quartet at the Lange Nacht der Streichquartette in Munich. In 2023 they record the complete Brahms Quartets for the Naïve label.

Over the last year the Agate Quartet has made their debut at Wigmore Hall and given recitals across Europe at the Konzerthaus Dortmund, Brucknerhaus Linz, Tauber Philharmonie Weikersheim, the Verbier, Salon-de-Provence, Radio France and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festivals. They recorded with Frank Braley and Gabriel Le Magadure for the Naïve label due for release in Spring 2023.

The Quartet is artist in residence at the Fondation Singer Polignac, resident at Pro-Quartet in Paris, and Associate Artist at the Festival la Brėche in Savoie.  In 2016 they founded the CorsiClassic Festival.

The Agate Quartet are Lauréats of the Fondation Banque Populaire. They are grateful for support from the Günther-Caspar Stiftung.
