The Quartet was founded in 2002, after a brilliant course of studies at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole and the String Quartet Academy. During these years, they have engaged with the traditional repertoire for string quartet under the guidance of the best teachers of chamber music on the international scene (Hatto Beyerle, Christophe Giovaninetti, Piero Farulli, Andras Keller and Andrea Nannoni among others). The Maurice Quartet has then continued to delve in today’s music, together with the most important musicians active in the contemporary sector: Helmut Lachenmann, Philippe Manoury, Irvine Arditti, Lucas Fels, Graeme Jennings, Francesco Dillon, Gyorgy Kurtag and Marta, Roham de Saram, Franck Chevalier. Maurice Quartet has developed a deeper understanding of the twentieth century’s musical language through the study of XX century and contemporary repertoire, performing works by Ligeti, Xenakis, Bartok, Shostakovich, Schnittke, Lachenmann, Scelsi and Fedele among others. A special project, “4 + 1”, in collaboration with the italian composer Andrea Agostini, is meant to deepen the relationship with electronic music and the exploration of the new possibilities it offers to the string quartet. The Quartet has performed through Italy, Spain, France, Holland, Austria, USA, Israel, Iran, Argentina and abroad.
