If there is one word to describe these four young musicians it would be "passion". First, a passion for period instruments, as members of the finest French ensembles, such as L’Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, Les Talens Lyriques and Le Concert de la Loge Olympique. Second, a passion for researching beautiful, forgotten scores and playing them with great skill and care. Finally, a passion for the quartet form, as the best way to express their musical harmony.
By choosing the name of Giuseppe Maria Cambini (1746-1825), a violinist and prolific composer who led a life of adventure, the quartet bears witness to its interest in exploring the stylistic variety of the classical romantic periods.
Since it was founded in 2007, the ensemble has been singled out and applauded for performing masterpieces by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn and for rediscovering unjustly forgotten French composers such as Jadin, David and Gouvy.
