Founded in Genova, Italy, the Cremona have given performances in Europe, South America, Australia and the United States at festivals such as the Beethovenfest in Bonn, Bozar Festival in Brussels, Festival of Turku, Kammermusik Gemeinde in Hannover, Perth Festival in Australia. In addition, they have given performances at the most prestigious concert halls all over the world, such as the Konzerthaus in Berlin, Wigmore Hall in London, Barge Music in New York, and Beethovenhaus in Bonn.

Mozart: String Quartet No. 1 in G K80 “Lodi”
Beethoven: String Quartet in F minor Op.95 “Serioso”
Webern: Langsamer Satz
Mozart: String Quartet No. 19 in C K465 “Dissonance”

The Cremona Quartet completes its Beethoven series with a fine coupling, combining exemplary technique and intonational purity with an interpretive acuity that strips away 19th-century rhetoric while avoiding the pitfalls of sounding merely ‘historically informed’.
