One of Europe’s most sought-after quartets, the Minguet Quartet takes its name from Pablo Minguet, an eighteenth-century Spanish philosopher who tried in his writings to make the fine arts accessible to the masses. The Quartet aspires to do the same through chamber music. Performing in the most prestigious concert halls and music festivals, such as the Salzburg Festival and the Beethoven Festival in Bonn, the Quartet has impressed audiences with their precision. “They possess a refinement and polish that commands attention and effortlessly pleases” (Calgary Herald). In 2010, the ensemble received one of the most prestigious prizes in Germany, the "Echo Klassik."

Ulrich Isfort, violin; Annette Reisinger, violin; Aroa Sorin, viola; Matthias Diener, cello.

In an effort to conserve resources and reduce paper waste, we post our concert programs as electronic documents on this page (see listings, below). If you are not at a computer, you can easily access this page by scanning the QR code at right (for iPhones we recommend the Bakodo barcode scanning app). Programs for past concerts dating back to October 2008 are available in our concerts archive. Click here to connect with the archive.



PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
