The Artemis Quartett was founded in 1989 at the University of Lübeck and ranks today as one of the world’s foremost ensembles of its kind. Since 2004 the ensemble has been creating its own cycles at the chamber music hall of the Berlin Philharmonie, since 2011 at the Wiener Konzerthaus (together with the Belcea Quartet, also performing in the LMMC series this season), and at the Prinzregententheater in Munich. In 1996 and 1997 the quartet won first prize at two highly prestigious competitions, the ARD in Munich and the Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Since then, tours have taken them to five continents. They have recorded exclusively for Virgin Classics since 2005 and have won numerous awards including the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, the Gramo-phone Award, the Diapason d’or and the ECHO Klassik. Their complete Beethoven cycle was honored with the Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros in 2011.The quartet is named after the Greek goddess of the hunt. 3rd LMMC appearance.

    About Author

    Founded in 1892 by a group of women amateur musicians, the LMMC embarks on its 125th season of uninterrupted musical activity. Originally all concerts were given by active members with the occasional assistance of local professionals. In 1895 the Club brought to Montreal the Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe, whose recital was such a success that the Ladies increasingly engaged international artists. Horowitz, Serkin, Rubinstein, Heifetz, Milstein, Stern, Rampal, Piatigorsky, Tortelier, Yo-Yo Ma, Lehmann, Ferrier, Souzay, the Budapest, Amadeus, Juilliard Quartets, the Beaux Arts Trio, are but a sampling of those who have performed and, in many cases, made their Montreal debuts at the Club. The long list of Canadian artists includes Saucier, Chamberland, Forrester, Alarie, Donalda, Simoneau, Gould, Turini, the Orford Quartet. The LMMC is a non-profit organization, managed by a volunteer committee. Admission is open to all on a subscription or single-ticket basis.
