The Tartini String Quartet started off as the String Quartet of the Slovenian Philharmonic in 1983, when the four heads of the string groups in the Slovenian 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 have 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 turn away from the tried and tested repertoire of this genre, 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. The concert is part of a series marking the 40th anniversary of the Tartini String Quartet.
