Epoque Quartet: when classical music meets jazz, rock and funk

The multi-genre formation Epoque Quartet was founded in 1999. Over that time it has earned a great reputation on both the Czech and European music scene, significantly shifting the boundaries of the quartet’s repertoire and presenting itself as a top-notch ensemble invited to collaborate with a whole of musicians from across the music industry (jazz, rock and funk).

The members of the quartet are laureates of several international competitions (for two times the first place in the competition of Liezen in Austria, the first price in the international competition Ludwig van Beethoven for string quartets, the price Jeunesse Musicale) and the ensemble took part in some other competitions (for example the competition Paolo Borciani), too. Abroad the quartet performed in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, England, Israel, Japan, Greece, in the Netherlands, Poland, Bosnia and so on.

The Epoque Quartet regularly performs in the subscription cycles of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Czech Broadcasting, the Czech Nonet, plays for the association for chamber music, cooperates with the Czech television and the Czech Broadcasting and is guest on prestigious music festivals (i.e. the Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival, Concentus Moraviae, the Music Festival of České Krumlov, Chamber music Cycle of the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, Metamorphoses (Switzerland), Music Festival Ludwig van Beethoven, Moravský podzim (Moravian autumn) etc.
