Biography

Ever since 1991 the Quatuor Danel has been reinforcing the principles that inspired the founding of this string quartet in the first place: a continuously invigorating approach to the repertoire from Haydn to contemporary composers, respect for the heritage of the great masters: Quatuor Amadeus, Walter Levin, Hugh Maguire, Pierre Penassou, etc. The choice of a profession: “quartet musicians”. With more than 80 concerts a year the Quatuor Danel has proved its mettle as a well-established formation on the international music scene, increasing the number of concert tours and raising its visibility in outstanding concert halls.

The quartet enjoyed working with famous composers such as Boesmans, Dusapin, Harvey, Lachenmann, Rihm, Volans, while concurrently also fostering younger talents such as Bacri, Bédrossian, Bosse, Brewaeys, Cassol, De Clerck, Defoort, d’Haene, Fafchamps, Honderdoes, Lampson, Mantovani, Mernier, Nelissen, Flender, Swinnen, Van de Harst, Vanhecke, Zhang, sustaining them in their long-term development.
