The internationally acclaimed ConTempo Quartet began their work as Galway’s ensemble in residence 11 years ago and celebrates its 19th anniversary as a string quartet this year.
Since the beginning, ConTempo have made invaluable contributions to our community by sharing their talents through performances with thousands of audience members; by mentoring aspiring young musicians; and by introducing classical music to young school children very often for the first time. Through collaborative projects they have enhanced our music experiences by performing with a wide variety of talented international artists across all genres.
ConTempo String Quartet was formed in 1995 in Bucharest, Romania. Recognised as one of the world’s top string quartets, ConTempo has won a record of 14 International Prizes and performed more that 1,000 concerts all over the world, including Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Berliner Philarmoniker, Theatre Chatelet in Paris, Opera House in Tel Aviv, Gedai Hall in Tokyo and Palazzo Quirinale in Rome.
Most recently, ConTempo have been named the RTE ConTempo Quartet. For details on the RTE programme, visit www.rte.ie
