Temporarily dissolved almost three years ago, the extremely successful Kelemen Quartet returns to the concert halls with two former and two new members.

The two founders, Barnabás Kelemen and Katalin Kokas, together with cellist Vashti Mimosa Hunter and violinist Jonian Ilias Kadesha, will debut at the Bartók Spring International Art Weeks in front of the Hungarian audience. They will perform all six violin concertos composed by Béla Bartók, encompassing his entire oeuvre at two concerts.

The two new members performed with artists like Martha Argerich, Steven Isserlis, András Schiff, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Nicolas Altstaedt, and Pekka Kuusisto. Together with pianist Nicholas Rimmel they founded their piano trio, Trio Gaspard ten years ago.

Called “the most electrifying string-quartet” by international news media outlets, Kelemen Quartet was founded in 2010 by Barnabás Kelemen and Katalin Kokas together with Dóra Kokas cellist and Gábor Homoki violinist.
