Four musicians joined forces in 2008 to form a new string quartet, the 'Haydn Quartet Berlin'. The quartet is supported by the association 'Musik in Brandenburgischen Schlössern'. The association had very successfully carried out a similar project and began supporting the Mozart Quartet Berlin in 2004. The Haydn Quartet has also undergone a similar development and has meanwhile become a permanent guest in the concert halls of Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and Salzburg. It has developed into one of the most outstanding German string quartets with exciting interpretations of the classical‐romantic quartet literature. The quartet had its successful premiere on 12 October 2008 at Köpenick Castle. In February 2011 the ensemble made its successful debut at the Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna.
