The ADELPHI Quartet consists of four European musicians. Founded in 2017, the quartet studied with Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartett) at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg and received valuable support from Eberhard Feltz and Valentin Erben.
In 2020, the quartet was awarded 1st prize in the prestigious Irene Steels-Wilsing Foundation String Quartet Competition at the Heidelberger Frühling String Quartet Festival and in 2021, they were prize winners at the 12th International Competition "Premio Paolo Borciani" in Reggio Emilia (Italy).
Concert highlights to date include performances at the Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker, Kammermusik Wiesbaden, Musiktage Mondsee, the International Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg and the Théâtre de Namur (Belgium). In 2021, the ADELPHI Quartet showed another facet of its skills with the world premiere of Bushra El-Turk's "Saffron Dusk", recorded at the Bibliotheksaal Polling.
The quartet also gave performances of Schubert's String Quintet with Valentin Erben (cellist of the Alban Berg Quartet) and participated in exchange programmes at McGill University in Montreal and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London.
In the current season, the quartet returns to the string quartet festival of the Heidelberger Frühling and is about to perform at the Hindemith-Tage Frankfurt and the Festival de Quatuor "Voix Intimes" in Tournai (Belgium). During the summer, the ADELPHIS work with young composers as part of a project by Jeunesses Musicales Germany. Debuts are scheduled at Wigmore Hall, the Brighton Dome, the Aldeburgh Festival and together with Maria João Pires at the Armonie d'arte Festival in Italy.
The four musicians of the quartet studied with prominent teachers such as Igor Ozim, Benjamin Schmid, Rainer Schmidt, Thomas Riebl, Lawrence Power, Heinrich Schiff and Clemens Hagen, among others.
Following its success at the Young Classical Artists Trust International Auditions, the ADELPHI Quartet has been a YCAT Artist since June 2021. It has also been selected as the first YCAT Hans Keller Artist in a new partnership with the Cosman Keller Art & Music Trust.
