Quatuor Danel


Marc Danel, violin
Gilles Millet, violin
Vlad Bogdanas, bratsch
Yovan Markovitch, cello

Quatuor Danel was founded in 1991 and has been at the forefront of the international chamber music scene ever since, with important concert performances worldwide and several ground-breaking CD recordings. The quartet is famous for their interpretations of the complete string quartets of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich and Weinberg. Their second focus lies in the collaboration with major contemporary composers such as Wolfgang Rihm, Helmut Lachenmann, Sofia Gubaidulina and others. Russian composers have a special place in Quatuor Danel’s repertoire. They have recorded the complete cycle of Shostakovich’s string quartets for Fuga Libera in 2005. This box set was recently reissued by Alpha and still counts as one of the benchmark interpretations of Shostakovich’s quartets. Quatuor Danel consists of Marc Danel and Gilles Millet on violins, Vlad Bogdanas, viola and Yovan Markovitch on cello.
