If our music carries you away,
then take it away
The records of the Annesci Quartet are a journey themselves! A journey through so many years and sources of influence. Viennese, Russian and French influence thanks to our journey with the Amadeus Quartet, Eberhard Feltz and Alain Meunier. Influences born of our curiosity and our never-ending pleasure in playing together.
The discs of our quartet reveal the total diversity of our repertoire. And since the string quartet’s repertoire is the second largest in the world in terms of classical music, our music will transpose you to hours of pleasure!

DISCOVERING AN UNPRECEDENTED FRENCH HERITAGE
Discover a unique French musical heritage Born in Paris in 1791 and brought up surrounded by music, Louis- Ferdinand Hérold began composing at the age of 7. In 1810, he won a first prize for piano, with a piece he had composed himself; quite unheard of! And in 1812, he won the Prix de Rome. By the time he died, he had left roughly 160 scores. A few years ago, at the request of the Ministry of Culture, the Annesci Quartet recorded the complete string quartets of Louis-Ferdinand Hérold. Listen to the complete works on a disc that won Compact and Repertoire prizes. This CD by the Annesci Quartet is currently unavailable.
