Berlin Piano Quartet – rising soloists, chamber musicians and members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra – have one thing in common: The passion to explore rarely performed repertoire for piano quartet.
Aside from performing the well-known piano quartets of Mozart, Brahms and Schumann, the Berlin Piano Quartet presents lesser known works by composers such as Martinů and Bridge. Through their work with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, these four musicians are constantly collaborating with the great musicians, conductors and composers of our time.
