The concept behind Quartet-lab came from a mutual desire between its members, four instrumentalists of international renown, to experience the wealth of string quartet repertoire through performance. The eclectic programming demonstrates their unique approach, which among other things contrasts established repertoire with contemporary works and embraces the art of improvisation through the folk music traditions of their native countries.
