Modulor Quartet


Founded in 2019, the Modulor Quartet has performed at the Davos Festival, the St. Galler Festspiele, the Swiss Chamber Music Festival, the quatres saisons festival Lausanne, the Chamber Music Days Bergkirche Büsingen, the Oldenburgisches Staatstheater and the Braunwald Chamber Music Week. The young musicians are coached by Rainer Schmidt and Anna Gebert at the Basel Academy of Music and have attended masterclasses with Eberhard Feltz, Robert Levin and Florian Donderer.  In addition to classical repertoire, the Modulor Quartet is dedicated to contemporary music and interdisciplinary projects with dance and architecture. The quartet's name pays respect to Swiss architect Le Corbusier's theory of architectural proportions – the golden ratio. In 2021 the quartet won a 2nd prize at the Orpheus Chamber Music Competition in Fribourg, the 1st prize at the 2022 Kiwanis Competition in Zurich and in 2023 was awarded the main prize of the Lucerne-based Marianne and Curt Dienemann Foundation. The Modulor Quartet was nominated for the Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes 2023 (Lausanne) and qualified for the 2021 International Bartók Competition in Budapest, the 2023 International Musicians Seminar in Prussia Cove (UK), the 2023 Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition (DK) as well as the 77th Concours de Genève 2023. Last year the Modulor Quartet joined the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) and the international chamber music platform MERITA.
