In the current and upcoming seasons, the quartet will be touring in the US, South America, Japan, and extensively throughout most of Europe. Highlights include the Wigmore Hall in London, the Paris Auditorium du Musée du Louvre, The Morgan Library & Museum New York, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Brussel Flagey, Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Munich Prinzregententheater, Tokyo’s Oji Hall and festivals such as Salzburg Festspiele, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Menuhin Festival Gstaad and Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In 2017, the Quatuor Modigliani was first the String Quartet to perform in the main Hall of the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.

After fifteen years of building up their own sound and profile, the Modigliani Quartet is now happy to pass their experience to the next generation. In 2016 they created the Atelier within the Festival in Evian and will be holding a series of masterclasses at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris beginning in November 2017.

The quartet has been recording for the Mirare label since 2008. The next release (2019) will be “Portraits”, for which the quartet recorded 13 musical miniatures from Mozart over Shostakovich to Webern and Anderson, among other things.

Thanks to the generosity and support of private sponsors, the Modigliani quartet plays on four outstanding Italian instruments:


Amaury Coeytaux plays a 1773 violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini

Loïc Rio plays a 1780 violin by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini

Laurent Marfaing plays a 1660 viola by Luigi Mariani
François Kieffer plays a 1706 cello by Matteo Goffriller
