Quarteto Arabesco

Quarteto Arabesco has evidenced itself as a pioneering Portuguese string quartet, with an original approach of a varied repertoire. It is constituted by Denys Stetsenko (violin), Raquel Cravino (violin), Lúcio Studer (viola) and Ana Raquel Pinheiro (cello). It is specialized in authentic performance of baroque and classical music. Period instruments are used and historical treatises and other written evidence are followed to gain insight into stylistic and technical considerations on how the works may have been played in the period in which they were written. This work has been enthusiastically followed by great masters such as Enrico Onofri, Alfredo Bernardini, Richard Gwilt and Gaetano Nasillo. Since its premiere in 2006, it presented more than 40 concerts, continuously seeking for the creation of novel programs. It has participated in festivals such as International Music Festival of Madeira, Maio Barroco Festival, Leiria Music Festival, Mafra Organ Festival, Encontros de Musica Antiga de Loulé, Faro Organ Festival, Temporada Musica em S. Roque, as well as in important concert halls such as Casa da Música, Centro Cultural de Belém, Culturgest and Gulbenkian Foundation. (text by Quarteto Arabesco)
