The Berlin-based Leonkoro Quartet was founded in 2019 by four young musicians of different origins and musical backgrounds. Currently they are studying with Eckart Runge and Gregor Sigl (Artemis Quartet) at the University of the Arts Berlin. In addition, they have received tuition from teachers such as Günter Pichler, Alfred Brendel, Heime Müller, and Luc-Marie Aguera.
In the summer of 2019, the quartet was awarded the first prize and “Adolfo Betti Award” for the best string quartet at the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival chamber music competition. They are scholarship holders at Jeunesses Musicales and received the “Walbusch Prize” at the 64th Jeunesses Musicales International Chamber Music Campus, which includes a concert at the String Quartet Festival at Heidelberger Frühling, and were given the opportunity to perform at the MozartLabor as part of the Mozartfest Würzburg.
In 2019, the Leonkoro Quartet has been selected to join the network of Le Dimore del Quartetto.
