For the third musical Thursday of April, Brera/Music, under the artistic direction of Clive Britton, would like to bring to your home this online concert in collaboration with Le Dimore del Quartetto, a creative cultural enterprise that supports the careers of young international chamber music ensembles and enhances European cultural heritage.
Program of the fourth appointment | Thursday 21 April, from 6 p.m.
The fourth Ensemble that will perform is the Erinys Quartet (Finland) with
F. Schubert – Quartetto in la minore n. 13, op. 29, D804, ‘Rosamunde’ I. Allegro ma non troppo
The reference artwork is Paesaggio, Giorgio Morandi.
The Erinys Quartet was formed in Helsinki, Finland by an international group of students at the Sibelius Academy where they study chamber music in the class of cellist Marko Ylönen.
They have also received guidance from Paavo Pohjola and Teemu Kupiainen, as well as Sini Simonen of Castalian Quartet and Simone Gramaglia of Quartetto di Cremona. In the summers of 2020 and 2021 the Erinys quartet was featured as an Emerging Artist ensemble
at Mimir Chamber Music Festival in Forth Worth, Texas where they performed web-streamed concerts for global audiences.
Summer 2021 also took them to the Greek city of Larissa and in Meteora, where they performed as part of the Meteora Music Days festival. In After that, Erinys collaborated with conductor and percussionist I-Han Fu premiering works for string quartet and tabla. Most recently, Erinys Quartet travelled to Norway where they participated in the Trondheim International Chamber Competition and played concerts in the greater Trondheim area. In Autumn 2021 they have been selected to participate in Le Dimore del Quartetto network.
All four members are simultaneously continuing their post graduate studies at the Sibelius Academy and are active in the Finnish music scene.
Le Dimore del Quartetto
Le Dimore del Quartetto (go to website to learn more +)is a creative cultural enterprise that supports young international string quartets and chamber music ensembles in launching their careers and enhances European cultural heritage, in a circular economy.
Born in 2015 from an idea of Francesca Moncada, Le Dimore del Quartetto develops from a simple exchange: on the eve of an artistic engagement, musicians are hosted free of charge in a mansion for up to a week and, in return, they offer a concert to the owners during their residency period. In this circular economy, the residences become a precious resource for the quartets and vice versa: opportunities to meet in unusual places and often decentralized territories are created, bringing back to life spaces that are not fully used and bringing a new audience to chamber music.
Today, Le Dimore del Quartetto, counts the participation of 91 chamber music ensembles (string quartets and trios, and with piano) with musicians from 41 different countries, 280 historical residences in 17 countries.
With a consolidated network in the field of music and cultural heritage, it deals with projects through the organization of festivals and travel itineraries, masterclasses, master classes and training courses for musicians, educational projects for associations, schools and universities, training and team-building activities for companies, residencies and concerts in historic houses and other places of cultural interest.
