Exceptionally talented piano quartet QUADRA is one of the fastest rising professional music artists in Latvia. Quadra was nominated for The Grand Music Award (GMA). Their concert in Jaunās mūzikas festivāls “Arēna” is nominated for the best concert of 2019. The repertoire of the piano quartet “Quadra” includes music of different eras, but especially the chamber music of contemporary and Latvian composers is generously represented. The opuses of Pēteris Vasks, Imants Zemzars, Tāl ivalds Ķeniņš, Jānis Ķepītis, Agra Engelmāns, Andris Dzenītis, Oskars Herliņš, Armands Skuķis, Vineta Līce and Juris Karlsons have been premiered and excellently interpreted.
The ensemble’s concert “Ķeniņš un Quadra” on November 30, 2019 at the New Music Festival “Arena” was nominated for the “Grand Music Award 2019” in the category “Concert of the Year”. Musicologist Armands Znotins has said about “Quadra”: “Without the piano quartet” Quadra “, Latvian chamber music would be much poorer. They play new works by Latvian composers, return to the values created earlier, maintain a dialogue between these scores and the performance of a foreign avant-garde, looking from time to time into the older and more classical past. ”
