Enesco Quartet

Constantin Bogdanas, violin
Florin Szigeti, violin
Vladimir Mendelssohn, viola
Dorel Fodoreanu, cello

The Enesco Quartet was formed in honour of the celebrated Romanian composer Georges Enescu. The ensemble has been mainly influenced by such musicians as Sándor Végh, Norbert Brainin and Sergiu Celibidache. The quartet appears regularly at the best known European festivals and in the world's major concert halls. They also frequently give masterclasses in France, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland, inspiring many young chamber ensembles. The Enesco Quartet has won the Paris International Chamber Music Competition and received numerous awards for its recordings. Apart from the traditional repertoire, contemporary music is also an area of interest for the ensemble, which has premiered works by Philippe Hersant and Serge Nigg, among others. Many composers have also dedicated pieces to them. Frequent guests at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival over the years, the year 2019 will mark their 40th anniversary. This season they are touring in France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Finland and South Africa.
