The Aperto Piano Quartet was established for the performance of works in this genre by a group of distinguished and experienced musicians. The violinist Gernod Süßmuth and cellist Hans-Jakob Eschenburg were co-founders of the Petersen Quartet, in which they played for twenty years. The viola-player Stefan Fehlandt, who joined the Aperto Piano Quartet in 2007, has played with the Vogler Quartet, among others, while the pianist Frank-Immo Zichner has enjoyed a distinguished career as a soloist, appearing in chamber music with the Vogler, Petersen and Leipzig String Quartets. The players had their training at the Hanns Eisler Musikhochschule in Berlin and received encouragement from Menahem Pressler (Beaux Arts Trio), György Kurtág and Norbert Brainin (Amadeus Quartet). The repertoire of the Aperto Piano Quartet includes all the works in this form by Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Fauré and Reger, in addition to compositions by Mahler, Schnittke and contemporary composers.
