Formed in 2016 within the Conservatorio S. Cecilia in Rome, Quartetto Eos immediately caught the attention of the musical world for the freshness and depth of their interpretations, winning in 2018 the “Farulli Prize” awarded by the Italian Music Criticism within the “Franco Abbiati” prize.

The quartet is currently attending the Master in Chamber Music at the Hochschule Lucerne with Isabel Charisius (Alban Berg Quartet) and regularly follows in-depth masters with musicians of the level of Alfred Brendel, Corina Belcea (Belcea Quartet), Eckart Runge, Patrick Jüdt (ECMA), Lawrence Dutton (Emerson Quartet) and the Jerusalem Quartet.
In addition, they attended the advanced course for string quartet at the Stauffer Academy in Cremona in the class of the Cremona Quartet.

The ensemble has already achieved important successes in international and national competitions, such as the International Anton Rubinstein Competition in Düsseldorf, the Sergio Dragoni Competition in Milan (2019), the first prize at the Orpheus Competition in Winterthur (2020) and the Lazio Sound Competition organized by the Lazio region in 2021.

Moreover, they often collaborate with renowned musicians such as of Calogero Palermo (first clarinet of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), Gustavo Nuñez (first bassoon of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra), Jerusalem Quartet, Enrico Dindo.

The ensemble has been several times guest of radio broadcasts on Rai Radio3 and on Rai 5 television channel.
Among the most important future commitments, a series of concerts in Switzerland (prize for the victory at the Orpheus Competition), two concerts at the Festival Sette-Novecento in Rovereto and as many in Naples in collaboration with the Associazione Scarlatti, the participation at the
Fortissimissimo Festival (in collaboration with the Amici della Musica of Florence), a concert at the Lingotto in Turin (in collaboration with “Le Dimore del Quartetto, that Quartetto Eos joined in 2017).
