The Mandelring Quartet’s phenomenal homogeneity in sound, intonation and phrasing has become its distinguishing characteristic. The four individualists are as one in their shared determination always to seek out the innermost core of the music and remain open to the musical truth. By grasping the spiritual dimension, exploring the emotional extremes and working on the detail, these musicians probe far beneath the surface of each work, thus revealing the multiplicity of meanings inherent in each. Their approach to the music is always both emotional and personal. All this combines to make the Mandelring Quartet one of the most high-profile ensembles on the international chamber music scene.
Winning a number of prestigious international competitions – Munich (ARD), Evian and Reggio Emilia (Premio Paolo Borciani) – has brought the Mandelring Quartet before the world's great concert venues. In addition to numerous performances in Germany, the Mandelring Quartet's concert tours have taken them throughout Europe – Amsterdam, Brus¬sels, London, Madrid, Paris and Vienna – North America – New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Vancouver – Japan – Osaka and Tokyo – Central and South America, the Middle East and Asia.
Numerous CD recordings, which have won the German Record Critics’ Prize on several occasions and been nominated for the Midem Classical Award, bear witness to the quartet’s exceptional quality and the breadth of its repertoire. Their recently released recording of the string quartets of Shostakovich, for example, has received several awards and been hailed by the specialist press as one of the outstanding complete recordings of our time.
The HAMBACHERMusikFEST, the quartet’s own festival, provides a meeting-point each year for lovers of chamber music from all over the world. Starting 2010, the Mandelring Quartet sets new musical accents with its own cycle of concerts in the Kammermusiksaal of the Berlin Philharmonic.
