Founded in 2012, the Vision String Quartet has already established itself as one of the finest young string quartets of its generation. With a unique versatility that focuses on the classical string quartet repertoire alongside their own compositions of other disparate genres such as folk, pop, rock, funk and minimalist music. The four young musicians from Berlin who identify as much as a ‘band’ as a ‘string quartet’ are on a mission to re-address, with integrity, how classical music is presented and perceived by both new and traditional audiences.
The quartet experiments with concert formats that challenge perceived expectations whilst being true to their vision of the music. Performances have included Schubert Death and the Maiden Quartet performed in complete darkness, Beethoven Quartet in A minor Op 132 from memory, and experimenting with lighting designers to give further creative dimensions to their performances.
