About us

The
Alinea Quartet

In typography, the "Alinea" symbol stands for the beginning of a new thought. The young Alinea string quartet, based in Munich and founded in 2019, has set out to break away from the norms of both how and where to perform the great quartet repertoire.

To achieve this, they are looking to establish a dialogue with their audiences in conversational recitals, constantly seeking to engage with different artforms and experimenting with innovative concert formats. This approach led to performances in places as diverse as the MAAT Museum Lisbon, Cambridge University and the 59th Venice Biennale.

Apart from studying and performing the traditional quartet repertoire, the Alinea Quartet strives to explore further by creating their own arrangements of both classical and jazz music.

At the XII. Concorso Musicale Cittá di Filadelfia, the Alinea Quartet won the first prize and the special prize „Paolo Serrao“. The ensemble has received advice and input from renowned musicians such as the Jerusalem Quartet, the Goldmund Quartet, the Vision String Quartet, Prof. Jörg Widmann, Prof. Oliver Wille from the Kuss Quartet and Prof. Eckart Runge from the Artemis Quartet.

In 2020, the Alinea Quartet was granted a scholarship by the Brahms Society Baden-Baden. In 2021, they were nominated for the Special Prize “Ton und Erklärung” by the Kulturkreis des Bundes der deutschen Industrie (Cultural Society of the Federation of German Industry). In the season of 2021/22, they are participating in the professional training programme of ProQuartet in Paris.

The Quartet was selected to participate in „MUSA – European Young Musicians Soft Skills Alliance“, an Erasmus+ programme seeking to enhance the entrepeneurial skills of musicians. They've performed in Germany, Italy, Portugal, France and Great Britain.

The Alinea Quartet performs on a set of instruments by the Cremonese luthier Stefano Conia, which was provided to them with the generous support of The String Circle.
