This brilliant young quartet from Hungary, currently taking Europe by storm, makes its New Zealand debut as part of the Chamber Music NZ 2014 Kaleidoscopes season.

The Kelemen Quartet has developed a worldwide following since winning the Musica Viva Grand Prize at the 2011 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.

The Kelemen Quartet has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting string quartets in Europe and is currently resident at the Bela Bartók National Concert Hall at the Budapest Palace of Arts.

Led by Barnabás Kelemen, who has previously delighted audiences playing Mozart with the Auckland Philharmonia, the quartet is a family affair, featuring Kelemen’s wife, her sister, and a fellow colleague at the Liszt Academy. Most of them been playing together since childhood, and all four of them are fully fledged soloists with first prizes that range from the Mozart competition in Salzburg to the Bartók and Szigeti Violin Competitions.

Barnabás was Hungary’s Classical Musician of the Year in 2003, and has been honoured by the Hungarian government with several awards that include the Franz Liszt Prize and Hungarian Order of Merit.

Hungarian passion. Classical perfection. Contemporary fire.
