Sonnenalp Chamber Music Festival 2019

Under the artistic direction of German pianist Michael Endres, Sonnenalp Resort in Allgäu, Bavaria organises a festival of fine chamber music each year. In the jubilee year, we perform four concerts as part of the 2019 Festival - it's sure to be a week filled with musical delight!

“A quartet to match the finest anywhere... it's hard to imagine that anyone hearing these four players would not be instantly captivated by their living, breathing musicianship.
