Biography

Known for their expert interpretations of 20th century and contemporary works, the Paris-based Diotima Quartet celebrates its 22nd anniversary in 2018. 

In 2016, to celebrate 20 years since the quartet was formed, two recordings were released: a boxset of the full quartet repertoire of the Viennese School, as well a new series of contemporary composer portraits. In 2019 the Quatuor Diotima released their CD boxset of the complete string quartets of Béla Bartók (for Naïve).

Beginning in the 2018/2019 season, the Quatuor Diotima is the first string quartet to be in residence at Radio France, lasting three seasons. In addition, their long-lasting collaboration with the Théâtre d'Orléans will continue, as well as numerous concerts throughout Europe including at the Rheingau Festival and Schubertiade, Schwarzenberg, Klangspuren Schwaz, November Music in the Netherlands, and much more. In 2018, the Quatuor Diotima was awarded the European Cultural Heritage Award by the French Ministry of Culture.
