The Arcanto Quartet, with violinists Antje Weithaas and Daniel Sepec and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, continues to be a special focus for Tabea Zimmermann’s chamber music activities. After a triumphant concert debut in Stuttgart in June 2004, the Arcanto Quartet quickly went on to perform at the Théâtre du Châtelet Paris, at Wigmore Hall London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Philharmonie Cologne, Konzerthaus Vienna, Auditorio Nacional de Musica Madrid, the Tonhalle Zurich and the Berlin Philharmonie as well as at the festivals in Edinburgh, Rheingau and Montreux. After their tours in Israel in 2008 and Japan in 2009, the Arcanto Quartet introduced itself to the North American audience in October 2010.
Following the resounding success of their first two CDs with works by Bartók and Brahms, they released quartets by Ravel, Dutilleux and Debussy, string quintets by Marron and Franz Schubert, as well as Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet and the String Quartet KV 421, together with Joerg Widmann.
Some months ago the Arcanto Quartett startet a sabbatical.
