Quartetto Adorno


Founded in 2015, it completed its studies at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole and was the first Italian quartet to win the Third Prize, Audience Prize and Special Prize at the 2017 Premio Paolo Borciani International Competition. The name of the quartet is a tribute to philosopher Theodor W. Adorno who, at a time of musical and social decline, identified in chamber music a key to salvation for perpetuating a true human relationship, according to the values of respect and the yearning for perfection.
