The Malion Quartet is comprised of four passionate chamber musicians, each of whom, even before the foundation of the quartet, performed at a number of reknowned Chamber Music Festivals, including Verbier, Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau Musikfestival, Heidelberger Frühling, Rencontres Musicales d‘Evian, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Musikfest Stuttgart, Podium Festival Esslingen, Mozartfest Würzburg, and Konzerthaus Berlin.
The young ensemble‘s busy concert schedule has included concerts in halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt, das Holzhausenschlösschen and the Solitude Palace in Stuttgart.
Shortly after the quartet was founded in 2018, they became scholarship holders in the Foundation Villa Musica Rheinland-Pfalz, as well as winning the Competition of the Polytechnic Society in Frankfurt.
In 2019 the members of the young ensemble were taken on as scholarship holders in the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA). In the same year, they became prizewinners in the PE-Förderungen Competition, and in 2020 they were the only string quartet to be taken on by the foundation.
All four musicians are prizewinners of national and international competitions, such as Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben, Peter-Pirazzi-Stiftung and Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now.
The quartet has received essential musical guidance from Prof. Eberhard Feltz, as well as members of the Alban Berg Quartet, Artemis Quartet and Cuarteto Casals. The four members of the Malion Quartet are Masters students in the Quartet Class of Prof. Tim Vogler at the University of Music in Frankfurt am Main.
