The Raphael Foundation has invited Acacia Quartet to perform and record Raphael’s string quartets Nos. 1, 2, & 6 in May 2017 in Berlin.
Günter Raphael (1903-60) was an extraordinarily versatile and prolific composer who contributed numerous works, amongst them 6 string quartets.
The invitation to perform and record Raphael in Berlin is a huge honour for Acacia Quartet. The CD recording will be the first recording of Günter Raphael’s string quartets Nos. 1, 2, & 6 and will allow the world to finally become familiar with these masterworks.
Alongside Raphael they will present pieces by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.
When in Berlin, Acacia Quartet is also hoping to learn from the very best in chamber music by having masterclasses with the Orpheus and Artemis Quartets.
As the Raphael Foundation won’t be able to fund the travel costs, Acacia Quartet is asking for your support to get to Berlin.
Funds raised will go towards Acacia’s travel costs and might even allow them to pay for one or more masterclasses while there.
