The “Quartettissimo” European String Quartet Festival is organized this year for the eleventh time by the Joseph Károlyi Foundation in cooperation with Pro Quartet and the support of the French Institute in Budapest and the City Council of Székesfehérvár.
The aim of this Festival remains the development of classic music culture in Hungary – outside the capital Budapest – and more specifically the string quartet music, in order to attract younger audience toward less known musical practices and foster young musicians’ international contacts, as each year this festival invites foreign artists and famous lecturers. The Joseph Károlyi Foundation wishes to contribute to restore the great Hungarian string quartet tradition.
September 25th : Quatuor Mona (Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert)
September 26th : Eliot Quartet (Ludwig van Beethoven)
September 27th : Kökény Quartet (Franz Schubert, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy)
