Dearest Musicians,

We had our first residency in the Netherlands and new exciting projects are about to come.
We would also like to congratulate with all the quartets who took part in the Audition de Quatuors Internationaux, at the Philharmonie de Paris for the String Quartet Biennial. Le Dimore del Quartetto was there and we are all very proud of you!
