Quatuor Diotima Will Perform at the Hindemith Prize Ceremony on 17th July
Since 1990, the Hindemith Prize has been awarded annually at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. Commemorating the musical pedagogy of the profilic German composer, violist, teacher and conductor Paul Hindemith, the prize aims to promote outstanding contemporary composers. The prestigious prize, amounting to 20,000 €, will be presented to the composer and conductor Samy Moussa on 17th July at Nordart in Büdelsdorf, Germany.
The Hindemith Prize Ceremony will be musically accompanied by the Quatuor Diotima, a leading French string quartet, founded in 1996 by laureates of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris. While being staunchly dedicated to contemporary classical music, the quartet is not limited exclusively to this repertoire. In programming classical works alongside today’s music, their concerts offer a fresh look at works by the great composers, in particular Bartók, Debussy, Ravel, the late quartets of Schubert and Beethoven, composers from the Viennese School, and Janácek.
On the occasion of this award ceremony, the Quatuor Diotima will perform works by Paul Hindemith and Samy Moussa.
