Bennewitz Quartet

Bennenitz’s Quartet was established in 1998. In 2004 the Quartet was awarded a prize of Czech Association for Chamber Music. In 2002-2004, the Quartet was engaged as a „Quartet in Residence“ in Basel and was in charge of a course of string quartets. Internationally, the Quartet is considered to be a top-quality chamber ensemble and it is supported not only by its success in two prestigious competitons – in Osaka in 2005 and Prémio Paolo Borciani in Italy in 2008, but also by positive feedback received by music critics. Currently, the Quartet plays at leading Czech and foreign stages (Wigmore Hall London, Musikverein Wien, Konzerhaus Berlin, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, The Frick Collection New York, Seoul Art Center, Dai-Ichi-Seimei Hall Tokyo, Rudolfinum) and is regularly invited to perform at festivals in Salzburger Festspiele, Luzerne Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Kammermusikfest Lockenhaus, Prague Spring and Dvořák’s Prague Festival.
