Since it was founded in 2008, the quartet has regularly been invited to perform at important classical events such as the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, the Heidelberg Spring, Grachtenfestival Amsterdam and the Bayerischer Rundfunk studio concerts. The growing discography (Tango Extreme – 2008; Cristal – 2015) has been warmly received by the classical market and the international tango scene alike. Reviews and interviews have been published in the Rondo, The Strad and the Tangodanza magazines, among others. The ensemble performs artful instrumentations of founder Martin Klett, who has made a name for himself as a versatile, international prize-winning pianist. Dutch cellist Karel Bredenhorst, also a founding member, brings his experience as a versatile chamber musician and from experimental crossover-projects. Violinist Thomas Reif was appointed concertmaster of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra at the age of 26, and has been awarded various international prizes. Norwegian Andreas Rokseth, on the bandoneon, graduated as the best bandoneonist in the history of the Codarts University in Rotterdam. He has thrilled audiences at the Buenos Aires Festival y Mundial.

  • Event Organizer

From August 7th until August 13th, internationally renowned artists and young rising stars from Germany, Greece, Georgia, France, Turkey, the U.S., Russia, and China meet on the Aegean island to perform eight open-air concerts in the Ancient Theatre of Pythagorion.
Alongside the artists, the audience is invited to be inspired by the lightness of the Greek summer, the historical significance of the location, and the beauty of the music.
The Festival’s artistic directors, the pianist Masha Ilyashov and the cellist Alexis Karaiskakis-Nastos created this year’s programme as a musical journey bridging cultural and national divides. The repertoire ranges from 18th- and 19th-century European classics through to Italian Baroque music, contemporary-music creations to traditional sounds of the Mediterranean.
