After a first album noticed by the critics (see here), the Lontano Quartet, founded in Paris in 2015, continues its original exploration of the repertoire through daring and committed projects. The rediscovery of little-known works in concert and on record, such as the Quartet by Vladimir Sommer (of which the Lontano provided the French premiere), or the Two pieces for Quartet by Aaron Copland, is at the heart of the approach that unites the four musicians since their meeting. Also committed since its beginnings alongside the young contemporary repertoire, the Lontano Quartet supports creation through an intense activity of commissions, and launched in 2022 an international call for compositions, which has garnered immense success (more than 380 works in competition).

After their studies at the National Conservatories of Lyon and Paris and in various European conservatories (Leipzig, Munich, Brussels …), the members of the Lontano Quartet continued to perfect themselves with musicians such as Miguel Da Silva (Ysaÿe Quartet), Raphaël Merlin (Ebène Quartet), Jeanne-Marie Conquer (Intercontemorain Ensemble)…

In 2015, the Quartet founded the Festival des Musicales d’assy (Haute-Savoie), where it is in residence every summer, and carries a strong social project with an offer for all audiences, including a rich season of “solidarity concerts” for those who cannot attend the concert.

Their second album, to be released (Cascavelle, 2022-2023), is dedicated to the complete work for String Quartet by Igor Stravinsky, and other pieces.
