Based in Berlin, the Leonkoro Quartet was founded in the spring of 2019. Currently they are studying with Günter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartett), Eckart Runge, and Gregor Sigl (Artemis Quartet). In addition, they have received tuition from teachers such as Alfred Brendel, Oliver Wille, Heime Müller, and Luc-Marie Aguera. Not long after their formation, the quartet was awarded the first prize and “Adolfo Betti Award” for the best string quartet at the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival chamber music competition. Following that, they received the “Walbusch Prize” at the 64th Jeunesses Musicales International Chamber Music Campus, which included an invitation to perform at the Heidelberger Streichquartettfest 2021. They were part of MozartLab Würzburg 2020, where they worked with Reinhard Goebel. In 2019, the Leonkoro Quartet has been selected to join the network of Le Dimore del Quartetto.
