Cuarteto Iberia
Cuarteto Iberia was formed in Madrid at the end of 2017 by four young players with a shared passion for chamber music. Since its creation, the quartet has kept the musical traditions of their teachers, but have also added a new point of view to the interpretation of the great pieces from the repertoire.

Since they were very young, the individual desires of each member to deeply study of the works written for string quartet led to the creation of this formation. This is the greatest exponent of their artistic expression and the way to achieve an exceptional musical atmosphere.
One of the best qualities of the quartet is their versatility to embrace music of diverse composers and to create projects based on the research and study of authors from different periods and style.

Great critical reception of their participation in the Boccherini Open Gold Festival in 2018 for their interpretation of the work of Luigi Boccherini impulses a career that was promising from the beginning.
They have also attended masterclasses and festivals in Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Luzern, Weikersheim or Madrid, receiving lessons from Alban Berg Quartett, Artemis Quartett or Kuss Quartett among others.

In 2019, they received a scholarship from Jeunesses Musicales International and were invited to take part in the International Chamber Music Campus in Weikersheim, Germany – one of the most prestigious festivals for string quartet. In this festival, they performed the two viola quintet of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart alongside William Coleman in the concert organized by the Rotary Club in the Rittersaal of Schloss Weikersheim.

In June 2021 they obtain a place to study in the class of string quartet at the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg with the Univ.Prof. Cibrán Sierra.

Since 2022 they are Quartet in Residence at Museo Lázaro Galdiano in Madrid and they have been selected to join Le Dimore del Quartetto network.


Brera Musica returns in 2023 with 10 new appointments to discover some of the most evocative views of the Pinacoteca di Brera.
From March to December 2023, the musicians of Le Dimore del Quartetto, in dialogue with the curator and art historian Alessandra Montalbetti, will introduce the public to the atmospheres of the pictorial and musical landscapes that are the protagonists of this edition.
The concerts are online on the third Thursday of each month, from 6 pm, on the website of the Pinacoteca di Brera and Le Dimore del Quartetto.

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.
