Quartetto Altemps - Schubert

The Quartetto Altemps was born from the meeting of four musicians with great experience in historical performance practice and the common intent to propose a different reading of the great classical and romantic repertoire, through an innovative and original approach. With the approach that in recent decades has revolutionized the conception and interpretation of seventeenth-eighteenth-century music, the Quartet intends to approach the repertoire with the spirit of a musician of the time who performs new music. Looking forward and not backward. The basis of this work is the study and comparison of original sources, manuscripts or first editions of the time.

The long practice and in-depth expertise that the four musicians have matured within internationally renowned ensembles, such as Il Giardino Armonico, Europa Galante, Kammerorchester Basel, I Barocchisti, Il Suonar Parlante, led them to undertake this chamber music journey with a particular stylistic awareness and executive depth.
