Quatuor Manfred遇上香港电台弦乐四重奏-法国五月艺术节2013

Quatuor Manfred
Founded in 1986 by graduates of prestigious schools, the Manfred Quartet has become one of the leading prize winners amongst French quartets. The Quartet's career was launched in 1989 by winning two major international competitions: Banff (Canada), where for the first time a European quartet was awarded first prize, and Evian (France).

Thereafter they were invited to play with renowned musicians, including Mstislav Rostropovich, Yuri Bashmet, and Tatiana Nikolayeva, as well as with musicians of their generation such as Claire Désert, Raphaël Pidoux, Florent Héau, and Pascal Moraguès, and to perform around the world: Berlin, Amsterdam, London, New York, Japan, China, and Russia. The Quartet concentrates on the romantic and early twentieth century repertories and recorded works of Schoenberg, Berg, Prokofiev, Schumann, Mozart and Chausson.


RTHK Quartet
The RTHK Quartet was founded in 2009 with a view to promoting the genre of chamber music and encouraging the art of chamber music playing in Hong Kong. Four outstanding musicians, violinists Ayako Ichimaru and Le Hoai nam, violist Elvis Chan and cellist Laurent Perrin, share a common passion for chamber music, and are the founding members of the RTHK Quartet. They introduce the audience to the rich world of chamber music, including some of the most profound and powerful music ever written. The quartet members, who are all Hong Kong-based musicians, come from different parts of the world: Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Luxembourg. This diverse background reflects not only Hong Kong's cosmopolitan environment but also the universal appeal of music.
