The Galatea Quartet is often touring in South America, where they have a big fan base. During one of the concert tours the idea was born, to transcribe ORIGINAL Argentinian tangos for string quartet. The four musicians could get composers/arrangers such as Pablo Fraguela or Tomás Nine enthusiastic about the idea and it didn’t took long time, until 15 tangos had been transcribed for four string instruments.

The Quartet was founded in 2005 and the members are the siblings Sarah and Julien Kilchenmann, Yuka Tsuboi and Hugo Bollschweiler. Recognition for the quartet came early on with competition prizes in Geneva, Osaka, Bordeaux and Florence. In addition to their competition success, the quartet has performed on tour throughout Europe as well as performances in Japan and India. Their first CD for Sony Classical Switzerland entitled ‘Landscapes’ featuring works of Ernst Bloch has been awarded the „ECHO KLASSIK 2012“. In 2013 they‘ve been given the prize for cultural promotion by the canton Zurich. Their last album for Sony Classical with Debussy’s string quartet has been praised internationally.
