Butter Quartet (NL)
The Butter Quartet consists of four musicians brought together by their mutual love of vibrant historically informed performances of string quartets. They first formed at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, and soon developed a passion and dynamic that extended beyond their studies. They have been featured in festivals and series internationally, as well as on BBC Radio 3 and the Dutch station NPO Radio 4. After competing as finalists in the 2019 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, they were awarded the prestigious EEEMERGING+ prize. The Butter Quartet enjoys integrating their research on late 18th- and early 19th-century performance practice into powerful live performances. They value a strong connection with their audiences, playing in diverse spaces and speaking during concerts. The Butter Quartet has received numerous grants and scholarships, and they are a beneficiary of the EEEMERGING+ project supported by Creative Europe. https://www.butterquartet.com/
