As much as its name comes from the Greek mythology of the Centaur of Knowledge and Art, we search the knowledge of quartet playing and the art of presenting it to an audience to the utmost possible.
Founded in late 2020 by four musicians graduated from the best conservatoires in Europe, the ensemble has already performed in countries such as Belgium, France, Netherlands and Portugal, in festivals such as Poitou International Chamber Music Festival (France), Musica em Si Maior Festival, A Corda Caminhos Conjuntos II Chamber Music Cycle (Portugal), the Storioni Festival and Blaricum Music Festival BV (Netherlands).
As a quartet they have worked in masterclasses with masters such as Eberhard Feltz, Mathieu Herzog, Joseph Kluson, Guy Danel, and the Van Kuik Quartet. It also integrates the Nederlandse Strijkkwartet Academie (NSKA) where they are regularly and intensively mentored by the Danel String Quartet, and a Postgraduate degree in Chamber Music – String Quartet at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel (KCB) under the tutelage of Eric Robberecht and Tony Nys.
