The young German ensemble was laureat at the Borciani, Hamburg and London competitions and is now member of the BBC 3 New Generation Artits Series.
The quartet recently played in Paris, Vienna, Cologne as well as at the Davos, Lofoten and WestCork Festival. It will now appear at Berlin Philharmonic (quartet series of the Berlin Philharmonic), Tonhalle Duesseldorf with Leon Fleisher, at London Wigmore Hall with the BBC, in Oslo, Frankfurt, in Santa Fe as well as in Boston (Harvard Music Association).

Thanks to its rousing and lively interpretations, the Signum Quartet has left its mark on the international quartet scene (Signum is Latin for mark, signal, miraculous works) and has established itself as one of the most interesting new ensembles. Founded in 1994, the ensemble has been playing with the current line-up since 2007. The quartet has enjoyed support from Bayer Kultur as part of its stART cultural programme and the BBC has also included the ensemble in its BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme.
Intensive studies with the Alban Berg Quartet, Artemis Quartet and the Melos Quartet as well as collaborations with György Kurtág, Walter Levin, Alfred Brendel, Leon Fleisher and Jörg Widmann have characterised the artistic development of the Signum Quartet, which has won numerous awards (German Music Competition, Premio Paolo Borciani, ICMC Hamburg, London International String Quartet Competition including the Audience Prize).
