Sep 30, 2017 | Wencke Wallbaum | News Quartetto di Cremona assumes 'Paganini-Quartett'

A unique and great privilege in a musician's life: after completing the Beethoven String Quartet cycle, which was honoured with a lot of notable awards - especially the ECHO KLASSIK -, the four musicians of the Quartetto di Cremona now assumes from the Nippon Music Foundation the so-called 'Paganini Quartet' - a set of two violins, a viola and a cello by the famous luthier Stradivari and once owned by virtuoso violinist Paganini.
So they join into the list of prestigious ensembles such as the Tokyo Quartet or the Hagen Quartet, which were also allowed to play these instruments on loan.
