The Belcea Quartet has established itself in the last quarter-century as one of the world’s most celebrated chamber-music ensembles. Founded in 1994 and mentored by members of the Alban Berg and Amadeus Quartets, the ensemble brings together musicians of very different artistic provenance: the Romanian violinist Corina Belcea, the Polish violist Krzysztof Chorzelski, and their French colleagues, violinist Axel Schacher and cellist Antoine Lederlin. This diversity is reflected in the Belcea Quartet’s repertoire. Its performances of world-premieres of new works go hand-in-hand with its profound connection with the great works of the Classical and Romantic periods.

The Belcea Quartet has an extensive and prize-winning discography. During its long-term association with EMI Classics, the quartet has recorded the complete Britten and Bartók quartets as well as works by Schubert, Brahms, Mozart, Debussy, Ravel and Dutilleux, amongst others. In 2012 and 2013, the quartet recorded the complete Beethoven quartets live to great critical acclaim, including a Gramophone Award. This was followed in 2015 by the quartet’s highly acclaimed recording of works by Webern, Berg and Schoenberg. 2016 saw the release of the quartet’s recording of the complete Brahms String Quartets and the Piano Quintet (with the Austrian pianist Till Fellner), a CD acclaimed by the press and awarded a Diapason d’Or Award. Shostakovich’s String Quartet no. 3 and his Piano Quintet (with Piotr Anderszewski) followed in 2018, with works by  Janáček and Ligeti in 2019.
