Adamas Quartett

String Quartet


Since the Adamas Quartet was founded in 2003, it has won several prices in various competitions: 1st Prize and Special Prize for the best Schubert interpretation at the International Schubert Competition in Ruse, 1st Prize and Special Prize at the International Competition for "Verfemte Musik" in Schwerin, Germany, 3rd Prize at the International Joseph Haydn Competition Vienna and the "Polish Music Prize" at the International Summer Academy.

In 2013, the quartet won the "Jeunesse MehrWERTPreis der Erste Bank" and released its debut CD.

This recording was awarded several prizes, for example the "Pasticcio Prize" of the national radio broadcasting station Ö1, Star of the month in the magazine "Die Bühne" and the "Diapason découverte" in the magazine "Diapason".


The four musicians put a special focus on repertoire of composers within the so called "Verfemte Musik", music that has been denounced as degenerated by the Hitlers regime.

Their second CD, released in August 2016 is also devoted to these composers and won the "Pizzicato Supersonic Award" and the "Pasticcio Prize".


The quartet studies with Prof. Johannes Meissl at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.
