Bode Quartet consists of soloists from the new Baroque Orchestra. The quartet presents chamber music through historically informed performances on the historical instruments.
New meets old, unknown meets famous – this is the main concept of Bode quartet.
The subject of contrasts reflects itself in the preference of Bode quartet with a combination of rarely performed works from contemporary or baroque composers, with well-known Classics.
The performance of string quartet literature in historical performing style is a very rare and special feature on the stage. The Bode quartet works also with contemporary instruments and explores the possibilities for different sound colors and timbre.
