The Karski Quartet is rapidly gaining recognition on the international music scene for its passionate interpretations of works ranging from Haydn to 21st century repertoire. The Karski Quartet was formed in Belgium in 2018 and performs in a wide range of venues throughout Europe. Having previously played with one another in many different combinations, the four musicians met as a quartet during the 2018 Resonances Festival Academy. Soon after they were awarded the Grand Prix as well as the Special Prize for the alumni of the Royal Conservatory in Brussels at the 4th International Music Competition Triomphe de l’Art in Brussels.
BRERA MUSICA | THE PROJECT
Brera/Musica is an innovative interdisciplinary project created by the Brera Gallery to explore the relationship between the visual arts and music, integral part of the academic, intellectual and artistic dimension’s development of the artworks at Pinacoteca.
This offer renovates and enriches itself starting from January 20th until September 2022 thanks to the collaboration with Le Dimore del Quartetto. The initiative, curated by Clive Britton, is composed of one online concert on the third Thursday of every month, available online from 6 pm on Pinacoteca di Brera’s website. Every performance is accompanied by an artwork of the Pinacoteca, from which the musicians take inspiration.
The appointments of 2022 will see young ensembles of Le Dimore del Quartetto’s network coming from different countries and selected by the artistic director Simone Gramaglia, violist of Quartetto di Cremona.
