What is the Streichquartettfest?

Every year in January, lovers of the special musical genre of the string quartet come together in Heidelberg. You can expect a carefully and lovingly selected programme and a great density of concerts, lectures, workshops, readings and more.

The Heidelberger Frühling Streichquartettfest stands for intensive encounters between international quartets, selected artistic guests and an extraordinary audience of enthusiasts, connoisseurs and the curious. The personal exchange, for example at the get-together in the festival cafeteria between and after the concerts, creates the incomparable atmosphere of this short festival.

The motto of the Streichquartettfest 2023 was Mozart! which was explored together with six international string quartets.

The next edition of the Streichquartettfest will take place from January 18th to 21st, 2024. The programme will be published in mid-October 2023.
