|The musicians of the Artemis String Quartet|
Back in Siena with a program of Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Schubert, the Artemis Quartet is no newcomer to the city of the Palio. In 2004 the Berlin based string quartet won the international price of the Chigiana Music Academy (albeit in a different formation).
Since its successful debut at the Berlin Philharmony in 1999, the Artemis quartet has come a long way. Invited to the world's most prestigious concert venues, the four musicians also regularly record for Virgin Classics.
The concert will take place in the Academy's own concert hall in the beautiful Renaissance palazzo Chigi Saracini. Another reason to run for a ticket.
