The Bennewitz Quartet was founded in 1998.

A year later, the quartet was awarded the Czech Chamber Music Society Prize. In 2002–2004, the ensemble held the position of Quartet in Residence in Basel, Switzerland, where it led a course in quartet playing.

The quartet currently performs at major venues in the Czech Republic and abroad and is regularly invited to prestigious festivals, such as the Salzburger Festspiele, Luzerne Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Kammermusikfest Lockenhaus, the Prague Spring, and Dvořákova Praha (Dvořák's Prague).
