Quatuor Diotima is one of the most in-demand chamber ensembles in the world today. Formed by graduates of the Paris National Conservatory, the quartet’s name evokes a double musical significance: Diotima is at once an allegory of German romanticism and a rallying cry for the music of our time. Quatuor Diotima collaborates with the greatest composers of our time, and projects a new light onto the masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries.Awarded the European Cultural Heritage Award by the French Ministry of Culture the quartet is in residence at Radio France in Paris.
