In 2021 Quartetto Maurice is invited to impuls for the first time both as festival ensemble and tutor.

Since its formation, a constant and tireless research on sound has been the trait that has best distinguished the Quartetto Maurice. After an in-depth investigation of the traditional classical repertoire, which has guaranteed a meticulous approach to the score and an extreme attention to the performance’s details, the quartet showed the need to place the music of the 20th and 21th centuries at the very heart of its repertoire, exploring a great variety of contemporary languages.

Over the years, the Quartetto Maurice carried out an intensive training in the contemporary music repertoire, together with the greatest performers and composers of the international scene like Márta and György Kurtág, Helmut Lachenmann, Philippe Manoury, Marco Stroppa, Mauro Lanza, Chaya Czernowin, Simon Steen-Andersen, Marco Momi, Arditti Quartet, Quatuor Diotima, Klangforum Wien, etc. It is active in promoting new music through commissions to young composers, keeping an open mind on the complex contemporary music panorama.

At impuls, Quartetto Maurice works both with young impuls participants in the course of readings, feedback rounds and also intensive rehearsal work for a performance. At the first of its two concerts, the quartet will present itself with the 1st string quartet of impuls co-founder Beat Furrer, as well as quartets by Marco Stroppa and Clara Iannotta, also invited to impuls as tutors.
