Alma Quartet *

String quartet

Alma Quartet was formed in 2014 and quickly gained reputation as one of the most thrilling ensembles in Holland. Their debut album: Schulhoff Complete String Quartets has received stellar international praise. The Gramophone claimed "this set shoots straight to the top" and also admired the quartet for being "capable of the most seductive playing". The album was chosen for the 2017 Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 'Bestenliste' and was also featured on several German national radio stations including Deutschlandfunk and SWR2, the latter hailing Alma's Schulhoff cycle as the "new reference recording". It has also received top reviews in the major Dutch newspapers such as NRC Handelsblad, De Volkskrant, and Luister Magazine.

The quartet has performed at prestigious concert halls including Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Tonhalle Düsseldorf, Sociedad Filarmónica de Bilbao, Süreyya Opera House Istanbul, as well as clubs and other venues such as Sugarfactory, TrouwAmsterdam, Amsterdam Roest, Bimhuis and MCO Hilversum.

They have played captivating events such as Schumannfest, Classical Music Rave, Musicians Without Borders, RCO Opening Night, RCO Club Night, Shoeless Festival, Kantor Festival and TRACKS. They are also frequent guests at major Dutch radio and television shows including Podium Witteman on live national television.

Alma Quartet has collaborated with diverse artists such as Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Lisa Batiashvili, Denis Kozhukhin, Hauschka, Henrik Schwarz, Dauwd, Mees Dierdorp, Nicolas van Poucke and Nino Gvetadze.

Upcoming highlights include a return to the Concertgebouw during Robeco SummerNights, a recording project with Henrik Schwarz and a continuation with Hauschka in Tilburg.
