QUARTETTO D'ARCHI DI VENEZIA

Andrea Vio and Alberto Battiston, violins
Giancarlo di Vacri, viola
Angelo Zanin, cello

The Quartetto di Venezia inherited the qualities of two schools of quartet interpretation, that of the Quartetto Italiano, under the guidance of Piero Farulli, and the Central-European School of the Végh Quartet, through several meetings with Sándor Végh and Paul Szabo. In addition to annual appearances throughout Italy, the Quartetto di Venezia has frequently performed elsewhere in Europe, and in the rest of the world. They had the honour of playing for His Holiness Pope John Paul II and the president of Republic of Italy and their recordings include many CDs for Naxos, Dynamic, Fonit Cetra, Unicef, Aura, and Koch. Their most recent release is a 3-CD set of Luigi Cherubini’s Six String Quartets for Decca. With frequent broadcasts and television appearances, the ensemble has collaborated with artists of worldwide fame, including Bruno Giuranna, the Borodin Quartet, the Pražák Quartet, Piero Farulli, Paul Szabo, Oscar Ghiglia, Danilo Rossi, Dieter Flury and Pietro De Maria. For their thirtieth anniversary season the Quartetto di Venezia received official recognition from the president of the Republic of Italy, Giorgio Napolitano.
