Amarcord-Quartet | Berliner Philharmoniker
Berliner Philharmoniker


Back to the chamber music group overview

In forming the Amarcord Quartet, four members of the Berliner Philharmoniker bestowed on it a name which directly expresses their passion for string quartet playing: “amare corda”. Three of them had already accumulated extensive chamber-music experience in other ensembles: Romano Tommasini in the Philharmonic String Trio; Wolfgang Talirz as a member of the Philharmonia String Trio and Philharmonic String Octet; and Nikolaus Römisch as a member of, among other groups, the 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic. Andreas Buschatz – succeeding Alessandro Cappone (also shown in the photo) – has been part of the Philharmonic’s first violin section since autumn 2005. Following appearances in Germany and abroad, the Amarcord Quartet made its Berlin debut on 1 February 2004 at the “Marathon à la française” and simultaneously in the Stiftung Berliner Philharmoniker’s chamber-music series, in which they have been heard regularly ever since.
