The Schnitzler Quartett - founded 2010 at the Kölner Musikhochschule - recently impressed a sold out Beethovenhaus with technical excellence and unsurpassed musicality. The musicians: Werner von Schnitzler and Edward Bayer (violin), Maya Rasooly (viola) and Johann Ludwig (cello) also have individual impressive solo biographies. They reflect diverse influences internationally renowned teachers such as Igor Ozim and Pinchas Zukerman (WVS), Pavel Kudelasek and Michael Vaiman (EB), Hagai Shaham and Tabea Zimmermann (MR) and Miklos Perenyi (JL). As an ensemble, the Schnitzler Quartet focuses particularly on the time of Prof. Harald Schoneweg and is inspired by the Auryn Quartet.
