The Quartet


“Ad Astra Per Aspera”

Towards the stars, through the difficulties… How better to represent the demanding practice of the string quartet, leading both to extreme fulfillment of the musician but always aiming for the unattainable?

Formed in 2013 in Strasbourg, the Quatuor Adastra claims a very open approach to music, not hesitating to associate itself with projects taking it beyond the classical framework - into the worlds of jazz, theater or music. contemporary art.

Between modernity and eclecticism, through a strong and singular sensitivity, the Adastra quartet interprets the great works of the repertoire and is part of a process of creation and transmission.

Selected to take part in the "Tremplin for Young Quartets" of the Philharmonie de Paris as part of the 2016 edition of the String Quartet Biennial, the Adastra Quartet is regularly invited to international festivals. He received the Public Prize and the Young Public Prize at the Moments Musicaux du Tarn in 2017. In 2018 he was awarded the Fond'action Alsace.

Trained with the Debussy Quartet, several times a scholarship holder of the Academy and Music Festival in Flaine, the quartet joined the Proquartet institution and had the honor of working with Yovan Markovitch, Luc-Marie Aguera (Ysaÿe Quartet) and Irvine Arditti. He met Hatto Beyerle at the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) and perfected his skills with the great masters of the genre (Alban Berg Quartets, Danel, Manfred, Parisii and Ludwig).

The Adastra quartet has already performed or collaborated with many artists and composers such as Pascal Dusapin, Philippe Manoury, Pascal Contet, José-Maria Gallardo del Rey, Armand Angster, Pascal Schumacher, Laurent Wolf, Andréa Ferréol, Léopoldine HH.
