Founded in Berlin in 2006 and winning the ARD International Competition in 2012 (also sweeping all other prizes including the audience prize) propelled the Armida Quartet on to the international concert platform. Reaching significant career milestones between 2016-2018 they participated on the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme, during which the Armida Quartet gave its’ BBC Proms debut and celebrated its’ tenth anniversary. In 2017 the Quartet completed a season as ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) “Rising Stars” and 2018 saw them make their debut in the USA. In 2019 they took on their first orchestral residency with Duisburger Philharmoniker.
Leading towards a CD release of the complete Mozart quartets (CAvi records) in 2021, the Quartet released a second Mozart disc in 2019 and work on their unique editing project, working alongside G Henle Verlag publishers on a new edition of the Mozart quartets, continues.
