Ragazze Quartet

Instruments: String Quartets

Rosa Arnold, Jeanita Vriens [violins]
Annemernjin Bergkotte [violas]
Rebecca Wise [cello]


The Ragazze Quartet plays both classical and modern string quartet repertoire: inspired and on the highest level. In innovative programmes it embarks on collaborations with the most original voices in theatre, dance and literature. The Ragazze plays in concert halls like the Concertgebouw and the Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam, but can also be seen in concert series all through the Netherlands and on festivals like Oerol on the island of Terschelling. Tours abroad brought them to England, Sweden, China, Japan, Indonesia and the United States of America. Ragazze likes to join forces with young musicians and theatre makers just as with leading organisations such as Nationaal Dans Theater (NDT), the Kronos Quartet, Orkater and the Holland Festival. The quartet has taken over artistic leadership of chamber music festival September Me in Amersfoort. In 2013 they won the Kersjes Prijs. In 2017 the Ragazze Quartet won the Operadagen Rotterdam Award.
