Taurus String Quartet

An online special by:

Taurus String Quartet was founded in May 2012, making its debut in 2013 with two Janáček quartets at Festival Musiq3 in Flagey, Brussels, broadcast live on Belgian radio. In its first season, the Quartet played a diverse programme at Flanders Festival and Festival de Saintes (FR). In the 2014-2015 season, Taurus performed at concert halls and festivals in Belgium and the Netherlands, France and Ireland. Taurus String Quartet has collaborated with violonist Antje Weithaas and the Artis Quartet Wien (AT), and with the French actor Gérard Dépardieu on Eugène Ysaÿe's 'Harmonies du soir', for string quartet and orchestra.

Taurus has a predilection for the masterpieces from the great classical and romantic quartet repertoire including Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, Mozart, Haydn and Janáček, but also likes to discover the lesser-known works of George Enescu, Giuseppe Verdi, Ottorino Respighi, Karel Goeyvaerts, Bohuslav Martinů and Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis.
