This autumn the quartet celebrates its thirteenth season with the University by embarking on an ambitious complete performance of all of Beethoven’s string quartets.

Quatuor Danel

The Quatuor Danel is a string quartet made up of Marc Danel, Gilles Millet (violins), Vlad Bogdanas (viola) and Yovan Markovitch (cello). The quartet was founded in 1991 and has been at the forefront of the international music scene ever since, with important concert performances worldwide and a row of groundbreaking CD recordings winning many important international awards.

The quartet is famous for their bold, concentrated interpretations of the string quartet cycles of Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Weinberg. 

The quartet has been artist-in-residence at The University of Manchester since 2005, and performs a programme of lunchtime and evening concerts at the Martin Harris Centre throughout the year.

This autumn the quartet celebrates its thirteenth season with the University by embarking on an ambitious complete performance of all of Beethoven’s string quartets, the first time this has happened since 2005. Between 30 November and 3 December the quartet will perform all 16 challenging works, over five evening, lunchtime and afternoon concerts.
