ABOUT THE PARISII STRING QUARTET

Formed in 1983 by four lauded graduates of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, the Parisii String Quartet won early acclaim with its triumphs at three major international competitions:

1) Banff (1986)
2) Munich (1987)
3) Evian (1987)

Invitations followed from the major concert halls and festivals all over the world, and the Parisii has since toured regularly throughout Europe, the United States, East Asia, South America, as well as Africa.



PERFORMANCES IN PARIS

Much in demand in Paris, the Parisii performed the following:

1) The entire Haydn cycle at the Opéra Bastille
2) The Beethoven cycle at the Salle Gaveau
3) Shows at the Musée d’Orsay



Known for promoting contemporary music, the quartet has commissioned dozens of pieces over the years. Just recently, the Quartet premiered in 2013 the 5th string quartet, entitled Fata Morgana, by the renowned French composer Régis Campo.

Noted for its performances of distinctive and wide ranging repertoire of the l8th, l9th, 20th and 21st centuries, the Parisii String Quartet has distinguished itself with award-winning recordings of works by noted French composers such as Menu, Pierné, Tailleferre, and Reynaldo Hahn, as well as the complete works for string quartet by Anton Webern.
