Bennewitz Quartet

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote that: “… in addition to the clear structure of the music, what was remarkable was the beautiful musical tones and purity of intonation. Seldom does one experience such profound and effective sounding harmony… Great art.” The door to world recognition for the Bennewitz Quartet was opened with their victory at the prestigious international festivals in Osaka (2005) and at the Prémio Paolo Borciani in Italy (2008). They have also won awards on the domestic scene — the Czech Chamber Music Society Award 2004 and the Classic Prague Awards 2019. They have performed in the most prestigious halls across the world — Wigmore Hall in London, the Musikverein in Vienna, the Konzerthaus Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the Frick Collection in New York and the Seoul Art Center. They have been guests at festivals in Salzburg and Lucerne, the Rheingau Musik Festival, Prague Spring and Dvořák’s Prague.
