Ariane Matiakh is the wonderful new addition to our conductors list. With her, we win a musician whose career develops so naturally, and whose musicality is so sound that it is a joy to pick up the work with her, and to represent her worldwide for opera and concert.

Frankfurt Music Prize 2019 goes to Quatuor Ébène

The award is given annually within the framework of the Musikmesse trade fair in Frankfurt and honours personalities who have made a special contribution to the international music scene and culture.

The Trustees of the Frankfurt Music Prize acclaim Quatuor Ébène as an outstanding ensemble whose electrifying playing is characterised by passion, complete fidelity to the original works and a simultaneous delight in improvisation. Through their seemingly effortless crossover into the world of jazz, the musicians have succeeded in increasing public awareness of the string quartet as the elite of chamber music, as well as attracting more people, especially younger people, to the concert halls.
