Le Dimore del Quartetto


Le Dimore del Quartetto, besides the organisation of artistic residencies and concerts for string quartets and trios, takes care of  diversified projects having the same mission: the enhancement of the territory and the historic heritage, and the support of young musicians.


ARCHILLUM – Itineraries of Music and Discovery is a concert series oriented to a double-side enhancement: on the one hand the heritage of historic houses within Lombardy’s territory and on the other hand the classic repertoire for string quartets played by the best new Italian ensembles.

ARCHIPELAGO is a concerts series  during which the European ensembles of Le Dimore del Quartetto’s network study and work together with young piano, viola and cello soloists. The final concert takes place in the stunning Auditorium “Lo Squero”, in front of the Venetian lagoon.



DQ MINI MASTERCLASS The mini-masterclass is organised in Perugia by Le Dimore del Quartetto, with the support of Ilaria Borletti Buitoni, president of the Borletti Buitoni Trust and creator of the Franco Buitoni Award. The association selects three ensembles who are awarded with a scholarship that gives them the unique opportunity to participate to advanced courses with exceptional Maestros.

MUSIC WITH MASTERS – Advanced Musical Masterclasses is a course of high musical specialisation that takes place in Pistoia (Tuscany) in September. Classes are held by the most famous maestros coming from all over the world: the Quartetto di Cremona, Alfred Brendel, Eckart Runge, Gloria Campaner, Sergei Bresler, Luigi Attademo, David Orlowsky andAlfredo Zamarra. It involves the whole citizen body with lessons, concerts and encounters in the most beautiful historic rooms of the city.


FOURISMORE – 1+1+1+1 is much more than 4 The String Quartet as a metaphor for collaboration. Multimedia team-building tool for understanding and reflecting on different topics such as trust, creativity, diversity, shared leadership, FOURISMORE familiarizes also non-experts with the noble principles that guide the work of a string quartet and suitably introduces them to c-level teams.
