Berlin 〓 The crisis surviving at Artemis Quartet ?


One of the world’s top string quartet, Artemis Quartet, is in danger of survival. Cello’s cellist Eckart Runge and the second violinist Anthea Kreston are leaving the quartet next May. Runge is one of the founding members, so there will be no founding members.

Artemis Quartet was formed in 1989 by four students of Lubeck Music University gathered. Afterwards, they were taught by String Quartet such as Alban Berg, Emerson, Juilliard and in 1996 they won the Munich International Music Competition. The victory took a big topic for the first time in 25 years since the Tokyo Quartet in 1970.

They are then based in Berlin while switching members. Recently in 2015, after the death of Viola’s Friedemann Weigle, Kreston entered the second violin early in 2016, the second violin Gregor Sigl went to Viola and had a new start.
