The Atenea Quartet, born in 2019 in Barcelona, is positioned as one of the most relevant quartets of its generation. Throughout its young career it has won significant awards such as the Prix Jeunes Solistes Credit Suisse 2023, being the first quartet to obtain such distinction, and El Primer Palau 2022 (First Prize, Critics’ Prize, Extraordinary Prize JJMM Spain, Audience Prize and Catalunya Música Prize).

Despite its youth, the ensemble has been invited to perform throughout Europe at venues and festivals such as the Lucerne Festival, the Barcelona String Quartet Biennial, the Schubertíada de Vilabertran, the Musikdorf Ernen Festival, the Kulturfest Resonanzen Sils, the Wissembourg International Music Festival, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and the Juan March Foundation, among others.

Currently, the ensemble continues its musical training at the Hochschule für Musik FHNW in Basel, under the guidance of Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Silvia Simionescu (Gringolts Quartet), Claudio Martínez Mehner, Anton Kernjak and Anna Gebert. Previously, he trained with the Cuarteto Casals, during his time in Barcelona.

In addition, the ensemble has participated in renowned academies and masterclasses such as the Prussia Cove International Seminar (Claus-Christian Schuster), the Swiss Chamber Academy (Heinz Holliger), Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland’s International Chamber Music Campus (Donald Weilerstein) and Festival Aix- En-Provence (Quatuor Diotima).
