Formed in 2019, the Atenea Quartet was born with the aim of exploring and bringing to life the vast and fantastic world of string quartet repertoire. The Quartet has received training mainly from the members of the Casals Quartet, as well as from musicians such as Heinz Holliger (at the Swiss Chamber Academy), Heime Müller (during the 2020 Barcelona String Quartets Biennial) and Donald Weilerstein (at International Chamber Music Campus of Germany). Currently, the Quartet continues its musical development at the Hochschule für Musik Basel, where three of its members are currently pursuing Official Master's programs.
They have performed mainly in Catalonia and Spain at festivals such as Pódium de Matadepera and the Festival of Greece (collaborating with the Kronos Quartet). They have also performed in halls such as the l'Auditori Lo Squero, in Venice; the Juan March Foundation, in Madrid, or the Teatro Calderón, in Valladolid. This year, the Quartet is part of the catalog of Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya and Joventuts Musicals de España, which hold concerts throughout Catalonia and Spain. At the same time, their international projection has taken them to several European cities. In October 2020, they inaugurated the 16th Wissembourg International Music Festival, where prestigious artists performed, such as the Ébène Quartet. In June 2021, the Quartet performed in Venice, at Auditori Lo Squero. In addition, the Quartet participated in the Delta Chamber Music Festival and the Matadepera Pódium Festival, both during the summer of 2021, where they played with other professional musicians.
