The Skazka Kwartet was founded in 2020 in the Netherlands. The current formation was established in March 2022 and consists of Lena ter Schegget, Dmitry Ivanov (violins), Lisa Eggen (viola) and Emma Besselaar (cello).

A few months later, in May 2022, they were the winners of the 2022 Storioni Competition and as such they will make their debut in a few major Dutch venues this season.

In season 2022/23 Skazka Kwartet will appear in venues such as TivoliVredenburg, De  Doelen, and at the Storioni Festival 2023. 

Past engagements include a performance for Entrée, the Concertgebouw’s youth  association, a live-stream from TivoliVredenburg and appearances at the Delft Fringe and Aurora Festivals. The quartet performed live on Dutch Classical Radio 4 in the programme Spiegelzaal, where they will return this season.

Since 2020 they have been studying at the Dutch String Quartet Academy, following lessons with artistic leader Marc Danel and guest teachers such as Pierre Colombet (Quatuor Ébène) and Luc-Marie Aguera (former Quatuor Ysaÿe). They took part in masterclasses with amongst others Heime Müller (former Artemis Quartett), Mathieu Herzog (former Quatuor Ébène) and members of the Jerusalem Quartet.

The quartet is grateful to the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation (NMF) for Dmitry’s bow, Lisa’s viola and Emma’s cello.
