Announcing the Diotima Quartet's 2021-22 season

Diotima Quartet - Crédit François Rousseau

The Diotima Quartet has committed itself to contemporary music, but without being limited by it. Reflected in the mirror of today’s music, the quartet projects a new light onto the masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries, especially Beethoven, Schubert, the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg, Berg and Webern), as well as Janáček, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók.

This season promises to be exciting with many concerts with a rich and vast repertoire. Of particular note, the quartet will be in residence at the University of Chicago.
