Since it's foundation in 1994 the ARIA Quartet has been invited to the most significant Swiss concert halls. Performances at international festivals, guest performances, tours in China (1997) and Rumania (2001) all attest to the ensembles international engagements. The quartet is committed to the rich, traditional and new music repertoires; there is an increasingly attentive audience attracted to the interpretation of rare string quartet literature: participation in a portrait concert of Karol Szymanowski at the �Berliner Festwochen 2000� was a great success.
Close personal contact of the musicians with contemporary composers facilitate the immediate experience of premieres and first performances of Switzerland�s newest chamber music works. Alfred Zimmerlin�s string quartet, for example, was premiered in 2002.Members:
Conradin Brotbeck (violoncello)
Ettore Causa (viola)Thomas Füri
Antal Dorati: Streichquartett
Jost Meier: Lamentations für Streichquartett
