Tvm: As part of the ‘Germany and India 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities’ programme, Goethe Zentrum Trivandrum is hosting the Minguet Quartet on November 20, 2011. The Minguet Quartet was founded in 1988 and is today made up of Ulrich Isfort (violin I), Annette Reisinger (violin II), Aroa Sorin (viola) and Matthias Diener (cello). The group takes its name from Pablo Minguet, an eighteenth-century Spanish philosopher who in his writings tried to make the fine arts accessible to the masses. The Minguet Quartet has the same intention.
The Minguet Quartet is today among the internationally most popular younger string quartets and performs at major European concert venues like the London Wigmore Hall, the Cologne and Berlin Philharmonie, the Auditorio in Madrid and Palau in Barcelona, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Vienna Konzerthaus and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. The Minguet Quartet promotes modern music by premiering numerous twenty-first-century compositions. They also play Classical and Romantic Music.
The four musicians were trained as soloists by celebrated teachers at international conservatories and studied chamber music at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen and the Cologne College of Music. The Minguet Quartet plays on a unique set of ‘antique’ instruments, kindly given on permanent loan by the Stiftung Kunst und Kultur, Nord-Rhein-Westfalen.
Entry is free for this concert at the Co-Bank Towers in Thiruvananthapuram. For passes, please contact Goethe Zentrum Trivandrum.
