The Helikon Quartet,
inspired by Mount Helicon and it’s poetic muses, is an adventurous and versatile string quartet.
The quartet consists of four young women, all in the starting blocks of their careers, with a great willingness to work together to one common goal: creating musical purity. As they are involved in global issues, they see the importance of bringing out their personal message to their audience and followers. They did so by creating extraordinary programs about climate change and the destructive nature of human beings.
Working together with composers on pieces commissioned for them, gave them interesting and eye opening insights to the mind of a composer. Programming new music is an important way to let the voice of the present be heard, as it is a reflection of society. Combining this with their refreshing interpretation of the great string quartet repertoire, the Helikon Quartet can assure it’s audience a one of a kind concert experience.
