Trio Quodlibet
Trio Quodlibet currently performs at high-level national and international music festivals.
They have collaborated in various chamber ensembles with Eckart Runge, Simone Gramaglia, Gabriele Pieranunzi, Rudens Turku, Andrea Rebaudengo and Sandro De Palma.
In recent years, Mauro Montalbetti and Andrea Damiano Cotti have premiered compositions for them.
“Il Re Maggiore” and “Goldberg Variationen BWV988” are their recording projects published by DaVinci Publishing and SMC Records; in 2023/24 the complete trios of Ludwig van Beethoven will be premiered after their live radio performance for RAIRadio3 La Stanza della Musica in 2019.
Also for RAIRadio3, they performed live for two appointments of “I Concerti del Quirinale” and for “Lezioni di Musica” Materadio together with Giovanni Bietti.
The W. Stauffer in Cremona in the class of the Cremona Quartet, the Accademia Chigiana in Siena with the teachings of Bruno Giuranna, the Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland in Weikersheim with Heime Muller, the Cuarteto Casals, Quartetto Belcea and the meeting with the Gewandhaus Quartett have enhanced and developed the artistic qualities of the Trio Quodlibet; qualities that have enabled the three musicians to distinguish themselves also in important international competitions: 2nd prize ‘Tina Anguissola Scotti’ at the ‘Valtidone International Chamber Music Competition’, 1st prize at the ‘European Music Competition’ in Moncalieri and 2nd prize at the ‘Concorso Internazionale di Musica da Camera Massimiliano Antonelli’ in Latina.
For their musical talents, they were the first string trio to be selected within the international project “Le Dimore del Quartetto”, thanks to which they regularly perform in concert for Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane and Musica con Vista.
In 2017 they received the “Lili Comparini” scholarship courtesy of Dr. Carlo Comparini, and in 2019 Trio Quodlibet was awarded another scholarship by the Rotary Club of Cremona.
In April 2018 they took part in a tour in South Korea.


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.
