Formed in 2015, the Quatuor Akos is a laureate of 13th International Mozart Competition in Salzburg (Austria).
Inspired by the exhibition “L’Archet Révolutionnaire ” held in London (2015), the Quatuor Akos has started to explore the historical approaching by using the original classical bows for the classical repertoire composed from 18th to beginning of 19th century. Their first album consisting of integral piece of Joseph Haydn’s Opus 76, thanks to the financial support offered by the Foundation Fravanni (Belgium), will be recorded with the original classical bows and will be released in January 2021 from NoMadMusic.
The Quatuor Akos benefits Jérôme Akoka’s teaching from its very beginning of the creation. They have become acquainted with internationally renowned artists such as Luc-Marie Aguera (Quatuor Ysaÿe), Christophe Coin (Quatuor Mosaïque), Antoine Lederlin and Axel Schacher (Belcea Quartet), Pablo Hernán Benedí and Claire Thirion (Chiaroscuro Quartet), Yovan Markovitch (Quatuor Danel) and Quatuor Debussy. It is also their pleasure to extend the chamber music repertory by collaborating with richly experienced artists. They have performed together with Yoko Kaneko, Yovan Markovitch, Gustav Rivinius, Virginie Robilliard, Louis Rodde and Laurent Wagschal.
The Quatuor Akos plays in various concerts in France, and as well in Germany. They appeared in various concert halls, festivals and academies such as Konzerthaus Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Nymphenburger Sommer (Munich), Leonidas Kavakos International Violin and Chamber Music Masterclass (Athens), Nymphenburger Sommer (Munich), Le Chant de la Rive (Bretagne), Les Musicales de Ristolas (Ristolas), Le Festival Flam’ (Blaye), L’Academie Musique à Flaine (Flaine), Festival Format Raisins (Nevers), Festival Musique de Chambre de Metz (Metz) …
The Quatuor Akos receives the instrumental support offered by the Fondation Culture et Musique (France). They are in the artist-in-residence program of Belcea Quartet Charitable Trust since November 2018, and has been selected to join Le Dimore del Quartetto network in Septembre 2019.
