Within only a few years the Quatuor Voce has received numerous prizes in international competitions, most notably Geneva, Cremona, Vienna, Bordeaux, Graz, London and Reggio Emilia. Giving concerts worldwide, the quartet also works regularly with many outstanding artists including Yuri Bashmet, Gary Hoffman, Nobuko Imai and Juliane Banse.

Since its debut in 2004, the Quatuor Voce has been committed to championing the great repertoire for string quartet, seeking guidance from some of its leading exponents (including the Ysaÿe Quartet, Günter Pichler and Eberhard Feltz).  The quartet’s first CD release was dedicated to the music of Schubert and the recording was the critic’s choice in The Strad and was given ‘ffff’ in Télérama.  At the heart of the quartet is a strong desire to transmit and share their experience, be it through teaching younger quartets or encouraging amateur players on music courses.

Open to the diverse influences of the world around them, the Quatuor Voce regularly works closely on new commissions from contemporary composers. Their curiosity has led them to experiment with different forms of concert performance: they give their voice to silent movies from W. F. Murnau to B. Keaton, and share the stage with such diverse personalities as the Canadian singer/songwriter Kyrie Kristmanson, and choreographer Thomas Lebrun.
