The Tartini String Quartet started off as the String Quartet of the Slovene Philharmonic in 1983, when the four heads of the string groups in the Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra decided to try out their wealth of technical skills and musical experience in a string quartet, which among all the chamber groups has come to be regarded as the finest and most sensitive ensemble. In their work to date, especially within the concert cycle Evenings of Chamber Music, they succeeded in creating a convincing and fresh approach that is a new dimension not just in the authority of their performance and refinement of the programme, but also in how open their repertoire is. In formulating concert programmes the members of the quartet do not in fact turn away from the hard and fast repertoire of this type, but select works with foresight and consideration, allowing them to evolve in their interpretations. In their concert cycle they present certain classical works through which they demonstrate their imaginative and mature performance approach in a coherent, gradual evolution. In the six concerts we will honour their 40th concert season. The musicians begin with a programme that delves into the music of the celebrated Piran Baroque master after whom the quartet is named. The musical ‘Master of Nations’, who composed around 130 violin sonatas and more than 170 concertos provided the foundations of the string quartet in four uniquely beautiful Sonate a quattro.
