Quatuor Mona

“An energy never seen in the string quartet genre. The communication is so alive and so beautiful to watch, generously giving the audience access to the splendors of the score"

Founded in 2018 at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, Quatuor Mona embodies the bringing together of four diverse and international musical personalities.
Quatuor Mona has established an immediate and notable presence in France, performing at Philharmonie de Paris (Grand Pierre Boulez Hall), Radio France, Musée de l’Orangerie, Musique à l’Empéri à Salon-de-Provence (with Emmanuel Pahud), Festival Debussy, ‘Nuit du Quatuor’ in Paris. They have received Special Prizes from their participation in both the Ravel in Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Orangerie de Sceaux festivals.


They have now also been invited to give extensive concerts abroad such as the International Edinburgh Festival, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Heidelberg Music Festival, Icking Festival, Bordeaux Academy festival, Festival Groba in Spain, Quartettissimo Festival in Hungary, and St John’s Smith Square in London.


Since 2019, they have been ‘Artists in Residence’ at ProQuartet CEMC in Paris, as well as the Foundation Villa Musica in Germany and the Escuela de Reina Sofia in Madrid, the latter under the guidance of Günther Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet). They have also benefited from the valuable advice of musicians such as Mathieu Herzog, Valentin Erben, Luc-Marie Aguerra, and Rainer Schmidt.


Mesmerized by their talent, the pianist and composer Abdel Rahman El Bacha dedicated his piece “Prélude à cordes” to the young quartet, which they performed as part of the 2019 Classissimo Festival in Brussels.
