The Bergonzi quartet was formed in 1994 at the University of Miami School of Music in Coral Gables, Florida. Each member of the ensemble performed in successful string quartets prior to that time. Their blend of experience and talent was an immediate success. In their first year of existence, the Bergonzi was named Quartet-in-Residence at the prestigious Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach with a mandate to present all the string quartets of Ludwig van Beethoven, a critically successful project which spanned three seasons.

The Bergonzi has since performed each year in the international Festival Miami and the Friends of Chamber Music series in Coral Gables, a series which also regularly presents the Guarneri, Tokyo, Emerson and American Quartets. They have also toured the Netherlands and Italy and present concerts throughout the United States. The collective experience of the Bergonzi is extensive. Members have performed in virtually every major in the world with concerts throughout Europe, Japan, Korea, South America, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Bergonzi can boast a collective discography of 22 CDs and records, a Prix du Disque and Peabody Award. In addition to their residency at the University of Miami, members have held posts at many major institutions including Harvard, University of Michigan, Interlochen and Suny Buffalo. During the summers, the Bergonzi four have taught and performed at the Hot Springs Music Festival in Arkansas, the Franciscan Chamber Players Festival in Toledo, and the Pine Mountain Music Festival in Houghton and Iron Mountain, Michigan.
