The Atenea Quartet was founded in 2017 in Barcelona. Informed by a respect for the rich history of music and working under the close guidance of The Cuarteto Casals, these four young musicians aim to explore, discover, and give life to the timeless repertoire of the string quartet.
The Quartet has performed all over the country at venues such as L’Auditori de Barcelona, L’Atlàntida Vic, Teatre Grec, and at the Pòdium de Matadepera. In addition, they have made several European appearances including performances at the Geneva Radio Concert Hall and at the Wissembourg International Music Festival. Atenea are competition laureates, having been awarded the First Prize at the DeltaChamber International music competition 2019.
As prize winners, they are scheduled to give a recital at the 2021 edition of the festival.
The Quartet are members of the Juventuts Musicals de Catalunya and the Juventudes Musicales de España, both of which provide the ensemble with numerous professional engagements throughout Spain.
