For the third musical Thursday of March, 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 third appointment | Thursday 17 March, from 6 p.m.
The third Ensemble that will perform is the Kleio Quartet (United Kingdom) with
F. J. Haydn – Quartetto per archi n. 32 in do maggiore, op. 20 n. 2 Sonnenquartette (Quartetto del sole) II. Adagio

The Kleio Quartet was formed at the Seiji Ozawa International Chamber Academy in 2019.
They consist of individually acclaimed musicians Yume Fujise, Katherine Yoon, Jenny Lewisohn and Hsing Han Tsai.
They have performed in major international venues such as Wigmore Hall, Victoria Hall, Cadogan Hall, Royal Festival Hall, the DR Koncerthuset and many others.
The Kleio Quartet is particularly grateful for ongoing support and mentorship from Alina Ibragimova. They have also received coachings from world-renowned chamber musicians Pinchas Zukerman, Nobuko Imai, Sadao Harada, Pablo Hernán Benedí and Pamela Frank.
In 2021 they have been invited to join Le Dimore del Quartetto’s network.
This season they will hold a Residency at Snape Maltings’ Britten-Pears Festival in Aldeburgh and embark on ChamberStudio’s Mentorship Programme under the guidance of Doric String Quartet cellist, John Myerscough.
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.
