«What about?»

After three years of study, competitions, concerts and great satisfaction has finally come for us the time to make an incision of some of the greatest masterpieces for string quartet. This album is a tribute to J. Haydn, D.Schostakovich and I.Stravinskij, three composers who contributed in different ways to the greatness of chamber music, and to the people who have appreciated and supported us. This project consists of creating a high quality product that will be realized inside the "Auditorium G.Arvedi" in Cremona, a modern hall with exceptional acoustics designed especially for chamber music ( http://www.museodelviolino.org/auditorium/auditorium-idea/ ). Obviously the use of a structure of great value like this implies high costs, as well as the rent of the equipment and personnel needed for audio / video recording, editing, production of the CD and its spread. This financing project on "Wemakeit" has a duration of 60 days after which it will be successful only if we are able to obtain the required total amount and only in this case we receive your donations. Therefore, it is an ambitious project in which we believe so much and that will allow us to reach with our music even those who still do not know us. We trust in your support.

Quartetto Noûs

Tiziano Baviera – violin / Alberto Franchin – violin / Sara Dambruoso – viola / Tommaso Tesini – cello  

“Two violins, a viola and a cello in a perfect osmosis.”  / “The performance of Quartetto Noûs deeply touched sensory perception, creating a magical full of humanity atmosphere, that elevates the music.”  / “Talent and cleverness in expressing themselves in unison and giving emotions and moments of rare technical skill.”

Noûs (nùs), is an ancient greek word whose meaning is mind and therefore rationality, but also inspiration and creativity.

Quartetto Noûs, formed by four young Italian musicians, was founded in 2011 in "Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana" of Lugano where they had the chance to meet internationally renowned teatchers as Aldo Campagnari ("Quartetto Prometeo"), Bruno Giuranna, Carlo Chiarappa (“Nuovo Quartetto”), Massimo Quarta, Robert Cohen ("Fine Arts Quartet"). The Quartet is attending the prestigious "Walter Stauffer Academy" in Cremona studying with "Quartetto di Cremona" and with Professor Reiner Schmidt ("Hagen Quartett") in the "Musik Akademie Basel". The Quartet won the first prize in the International Competition "Luigi Nono" of Venaria Reale and was invited to play for the season "I Concerti del Quirinale" in Rome live broadcast on Radio3. Quartetto Noûs performs regularly for important italian concert seasons as "Amici della Musica" in Palermo, “Associazione V.Bellini” in Messina, "GOG" in Genova, Associazione Amici del Quartetto "Guido A.Borciani" in Reggio Emilia," Teatro Comunale " of Ferrara," Polincontri" in Torino and "Musica Insieme" in Bologna. They had the opportunity to perform in "Monteleón Chamber Music Festival" of León (Spain) after being selected between 74 groups from all over the world. The Quartet was invited in the 2013 edition of the "Festival Ticino Musica" in Lugano as Quartet in Residence and has inaugurated, in the same year, the season of "Stradivari Festival" in Cremona.
