Amar Quartet

Anna Brunner, violin I
Igor Keller, violin II
Hannes Bärtschi, viola
Péter Somodari, cello

Named after its principal violinist Licco Amar, Paul Hindemith founded a quartet in 1922. On the occasion of his 100th birthday in 1995, the Hindemith Institute awarded the Zürich-based ensemble the historic name of the Amar Quartet, the members of which are Anna Brunner and Igor Keller (violins), Hannes Bärtschi (viola), and Péter Somodari (cello). During its studies with the Alban Berg Quartet, the Amar Quartet won numerous international awards, followed by successful débuts at famous concert halls, as well as invitations to teach in masterclasses. The ensemble regularly commissions new works, with priority given to Swiss composers, as conscious promotion of contemporary music in its programming is one of the quartet’s aims. The ensemble has shown passionate engagement with the work of Paul Hindemith, and is more and more making for itself a name in Switzerland, with events such as their Homage to Hindemith and Tonwort, combining music and literature, with readings by poets and other writers.
