DIMORE DEL QUARTETTO
The network enhancing young string quartets and historic houses in a circular economy
Le Dimore del Quartetto supports young string quartets in the early phase of their career and promotes the cultural heritage of historic houses, while creating occasions of encounter in unconventional places and bringing a new public closer to chamber music.
The main activity is based on the exchange between hospitality and concerts: in occasion of an artistic commitment, the ensembles are hosted by a house of the network and the musicians gift the house owners with a concert. This exchange creates a circular economy that gets back to all the participants much more than the resources employed
• the quartets find places where to gather and study quitely
• the houses open their spaces through a structured cultural activity
• the audience participates for free at high-quality concerts with a unique format, not only listening but mostly living an immersive experience into beauty
The ensembles are selected by the artistic director M° Simone Gramaglia (Quartetto di Cremona) among string quartets, string trios, and quartets and trios with piano.
