Schumann Quartett

Saturday 13–Sunday 14 May

‘With no ifs or buts, the “Schumanns” are among the best quartets in the world’

Süddeutsche Zeitung

Brothers Erik, Ken, and Mark Schumann, with Veit Hertenstein, are the Schumann Quartett. Their exhilarating performances have won international acclaim and their six albums have accrued awards from BBC Music Magazine, an Opus Klassik, and a Jahrespreis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik. This band of brothers have been the Quartet-in-Residence at Wigmore Hall, made guest appearances at festivals and concert series across Europe, and continue to tour extensively in the USA. As critics predicted, ‘the future belongs to them.’

They are in our region for performances in Singapore, and as this will be the only opportunity to hear the quartet in Australia, we have dedicated a weekend to them. Experience masterpieces of the repertoire with one of the great quartets of the world.
