“Without a doubt, the Armida Quartet is one of the young newcomer ensembles that lets us experience music in a new way. We need not worry about the future of chamber music: it is already here.” RONDO magazine, 2 Jan 2016

With their spectacular triumph at the International ARD Competition in Munich in 2012, where they won First Prize, the Audience Prize and six further prizes, the young string quartet from Berlin embarked on a unique musical career.
The BBC featured them from 2014 to 2016 in a great number of recitals and broadcast recordings within the framework of its “New Generation Artists” series. In the 2016/17 season they were part of the renowned “Rising Stars” series organized by the great European concert halls; ever since then, the quartet tours the finest chamber music auditoriums in Europe, Asia, and the US
