Atenea Quartet

The Atenea Quartet, created in 2019 in Barcelona, is one of the most relevant quartets of its generation. Throughout its young career it has obtained significant awards such as the Prix Jeunes Solistes Credit Suisse 2023, being the first quartet to obtain such distinction, and El Primer Palau 2022 (First Prize, Critics' Prize, Extraordinary Prize JJMM Spain, Audience Prize and Catalunya Música Prize). It is formed by Jaume Angelès (violin), Gil Sisquella (violin), Bernat Santacana (viola) and Iago Domínguez (cello).     

Despite its youth, the ensemble has been invited to perform throughout Europe at venues and festivals such as the Lucerne Festival, the Barcelona String Quartet Biennial, the Schubertíada de Vilabertran, the Musikdorf Ernen Festival, the Kulturfest Resonanzen Sils, the Wissembourg International Music Festival, the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and Fundación Juan March.

Currently, the ensemble continues its musical training at the Hochschule für Musik FHNW in Basel, under the guidance of Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Silvia Simionescu (Gringolts Quartet), Claudio Martínez Mehner, Anton Kernjak and Anna Gebert. Previously, they trained with the Cuarteto Casals, during his time in Barcelona. Since the 23-24 academic year, they study at the International Institute of Chamber Music of Madrid of the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía with Günter Pichler.

In addition, the ensemble has participated in renowned academies and masterclasses such as the Prussia Cove International Seminar (Claus-Christian Schuster), the Swiss Chamber Academy (Heinz Holliger), Jeunesses Musicales Deutschland's International Chamber Music Campus (Donald Weilerstein) and Festival Aix- En-Provence (Quatuor Diotima).
