The Borea String Quartet was founded in 2010 by students of the Sibelius Academy. They have been under the guidance of Paavo Pohjola right from the beginning. The quartet has also attended a number of masterclasses run by the likes of Meta4, the Danel Quartet and Marko Ylönen. In spring 2016 the Boreas attended a masterclass given by Gerhard Schulz at the International Musicians Seminar Prussia Cove, in the UK, and have collaborated with the internationally acclaimed Kelemen and Henschel Quartets. They have also appeared at many Finnish festivals. In 2014 they were chosen as Young Artist of the Year at the Hauho Music Festival, and in spring 2017 Kuhmo Chamber Music appointed them its quartet-in-residence. In August 2017 the players are running the Kamarikesä festival with Johannes Piirto and Henriikka Teerikangas. Last year they gave the first performance of Juha T. Koskinen's String Quartet No 2 entitled Under a Gingko Tree in Tiergarten and this year they will be premiering works by Tapio Tuomela, Johannes Piirto and Matti Heininen.
