Minguet Quartett

The Minguet Quartett, founded in 1988, is among one of the most well-received string quartets internationally and performs at major concert venues worldwide. The passionate and intelligent interpretations of the Minguet Quartett always ensure inspiring listening experiences – “for the joy in sound and expression with which the ensemble makes the works speak enlivens even the smallest detail” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).


The namesake of the ensemble is Pablo Minguet, a Spanish philosopher of the 18th century who attempted, in his writings, to facilitate access to the fine arts for all sectors of the population – and this idea is a chief artistic concern of the Minguet Quartett.


The quartet focuses on the Classical and Romantic repertoires as well as contemporary music, and promotes the latter by premiering numerous compositions of our own times. In 2010 the Minguet Quartett was awarded the prestigious ECHO Klassik Prize.
