阿密達弦樂四重奏的名字來自海頓的歌劇《阿密達》,這名字與「弦樂四重奏之父」連結在一起絕非巧合。海頓曾經說過,「我的音樂語彙,就是要讓全世界的人了解的。」要讓所有樂迷都能「聽得懂」弦樂四重奏作品,也是阿密達弦樂四重奏的目標。海頓音樂裡慧黠而創造力十足的精神,對他們這些年輕音樂家的演出,也帶來不小的刺激與啟發。

阿密達弦樂四重奏 2006 年於柏林成立,和阿特密斯弦樂四重奏團關係甚密,成立時他們正是阿特密斯弦樂四重奏團在柏林藝術大學弦樂四重奏課的學生。他們先後從阿特密斯弦樂四重奏團第一小提琴手普森絲倩潘可(Natalia Prischepenko)、鋼琴家布蘭德爾、中提琴家齊瑪曼(Tabea Zimmermann)等人身上受到鼓舞,也接受阿班貝爾格弦樂四重奏團、瓜奈里弦樂四重奏團、阿迪替弦樂四重奏團(Arditti Quartet)的大師班指導。時年九月,他們獲得第 61 屆慕尼黑 ARD 國際音樂大賽的首獎以及觀眾票選獎,同時還獲得該比賽受委託新作(圖爾《迷失的祈禱者》)的最佳詮釋獎等。2011 年,阿密達弦樂四重奏則獲得第 66 屆日內瓦國際音樂大賽的首獎以及觀眾票選獎,同時由於演奏李格替第一號弦樂四重奏《變形》的優異表現而獲得特別獎。當他們之前獲得孟德爾頌國際大賽的獎項時,德國聯邦總統甚至還頒予他們獎學金。

阿密達弦樂四重奏在歐洲許多國家的重要音樂廳都有演出記錄,包括:漢堡的 Laeiszhalle、柏林愛樂廳、巴黎的巴士底歌劇院,他們也在石勒蘇伊格-荷爾斯泰因音樂節(Schleswig-Holstein)、萊茵高音樂節(Rheingau)以及「海德堡之春」音樂節演出,與鋼琴家庫皮克(Ewa Kupiec)、男中音漢普森等人合作。2012 年 10 月,阿密達弦樂四重奏開始在母校柏林藝術大學擔任教職,而他們的首張 CD 將於 CAvi 發行,包括巴爾托克、李給替、庫塔克的弦樂四重奏作品。

The Armida Quartet has taken its name from one of the most successful operas by Joseph Haydn. This reference to the "Father of the String Quartet" is no coincidence; the great master himself once said, "My language is understood by the whole world." Making the language of the string quartet understandable is the Armida quartet’s great concern. Haydn's wit and creative spirit accompanies the young musicians on their journey and is a constant incentive and inspiration to them.

The Quartet was founded in the summer of 2006 in Berlin and has worked closely with the members of the Artemis Quartet. The Armida members are currently attending the Artemis Quartet’s class at the Universität der Künste.

The ensemble has received musical inspirations from Natalia Prischepenko as well as from Alfred Brendel, Ferenc Rados, Tabea Zimmermann, Eberhard Feltz, Walter Levin, Martin Spangenberg and Heime Müller. In addition, the musicians have taken part in master classes taught by the Alban Berg, Guarneri and Arditti Quartets.

In September the Armida Quartet achieved first prize and Audience Award at the 61st International Music Competition of ARD, where it has been also awarded with the Special Prize for the best interpretation of the commissioned composition "Lost Prayers" by Erkki-Sven Tüür and additional five special prizes.

Already in 2011 the Armida Quartet received first prize and Audience Award at the 66th Concours de Genéve, as well as the Dr. Glatt" Special Prize for the interpretation of the String Quartet No. 1 Metamorphoses nocturnes by György Ligeti. Earlier the young ensemble received various scholarships, including Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Berlin, Schierse Foundation Berlin and the scholarship of the German Federal President, with which the Armida Quartet was awarded at the venerable Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Competition. In October 2012 the ensemble received a further scholarship of the Irene Steels-Wilsing Foundation.

The Armida Quartet has performed in numerous European countries and at some of Europe’s most important venues, including the Hamburg Laeiszhalle, the Berlin Philharmonie and the Opera Bastille in Paris. In addition, the four young musicians were invited to renowned festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein and the Rheingau Music Festivals, the Davos Festival and the Heidelberger Frühling, where they performed together with Ewa Kupiec, Thomas Hampson and Anna Prohaska.

From October 2012, the Quartet will take over a teaching assignment for the first time at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. The Quartet's debut CD with works by Béla Bartók, György Ligeti and György Kurtág will be released by the CAvi-music label in autumn 2013.
