Prof. Meyer-Lindenberg and the Signum Quartett

On 18 March 2013, the DZNE hosted the 12th installment of the “Music & Brain” series at Forschungszentrum caesar, Ludwig-Erhard-Allee 2, in 53175 Bonn.

The event began with a talk by Prof. Meyer-Lindenberg, Central Institute of Mental Health, Heidelberg University/Medical Faculty Mannheim, entitled „Mental Health in Modern Life". The Lecture was followed by a performance of the internationally renowned Signum Quartett who played works by Alban Berg and Alfred Schnittke.

Prof. Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg is director of the Central Institute of Mental Health (CIMH) in Mannheim, medical director of its Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and holds the chair for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University of Heidelberg. Prior to his work at the CIMH, Meyer-Lindenberg spent 10 years at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. His research focuses on neural mechanisms of genetic and environmental risk factors for psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression as well as the use of modern imaging methods in genetics, social neuroscience and the investigation of novel drug treatments and psychotherapeutic therapies. Within this context he is involved in numerous national and international research projects.

The members of the Signum Quartett are Kerstin Dill (violin), Annette Walther (violin), Xandi van Dijk (viola) und Thomas Schmitz (cello). Thanks to its rousing and lively interpretations, the Signum Quartet has left its mark on the international quartet scene (Signum is Latin for mark, signal, miraculous works) and has established itself as one of the most interesting new ensembles. The BBC has included the ensemble in its BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme. Intensive studies with the Alban Berg Quartet, Artemis Quartet and the Melos Quartet as well as collaborations with György Kurtág, Walter Levin, Alfred Brendel, Leon Fleisher and Joerg Widmann have characterised the artistic development of the Signum Quartet.
