A Bozzini Quartet concert is an art happening. Since 1999, the Bozzini Quartet has been a new and original voice in classical music. They have nurtured a diverse repertoire, with over 180 commissioned pieces and 300 other premiered works.
The Bozzini Quartet presents an annual concert series in Montréal and tours extensively, bringing its “intense musicality and immense sensitivity” (Musicworks, Canada) to audiences across Canada, the USA, South America and Europe. Notable festivals and venues include MärzMusik (Berlin), Ultima (Oslo), Tsuda Hall (Tokyo), Musiekgebouw (Amsterdam), Présences (France), Roulette (NY). The quartet’s musical laboratories, the Composer’s Kitchen, Performer’s Kitchen and Bozzini Lab, are opportunities to mentor and support new generations of composers and performers.
The Bozzini Quartet records under its own label, the Collection QB, which can be heard regularly on European and Canadian radio. Finalist to the 28th Grand Prix du CAM 2012, it has won three Opus prizes from the Conseil québécois de la musique (CQM). The Bozzini Quartet is also the recipient of the Étoile-Galaxie Prize from Radio-Canada (2001), the Förderpreis Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung (2007), the German Record Critics Prize for Arbor Vitae (2009) and the 2014 Friends of Canadian Music Award.
