Letizia Fiorenza & David Sautter

Eos Guitar Quartet

The Eos Guitar Quartet was formed in 1985 and has an international reputation as one of the most distinguished ensembles of its kind. The four guitarists – Marcel Ege, Martin Pirktl, David Sautter and Michael Winkler – studied at music conservatories in Zurich, Basel and Bern and absolved their studies with concert or soloist’s diplomas. The Eos Guitar Quartet continually amazes both the public and the press at its many concerts. The Quartet is regularly invited to play at the most important international guitar festivals and in the most renowned concert halls (e.g. Cordoba, Madrid, Sevilla, Caracas, Havana, Rabat, Rotterdam, Ludwigsburg, Ansbach, Bari, Moscow, Davos, Gstaad, Montreux, Zurich, Expo 02, Tricastin, Lyon, Nurnberg, Bucarest).
Apart from its diverse repertoire, the Eos Guitar Quartet also sets great emphasis on commissioning jazz and classical works from contemporary composers and giving debut performances of the commissioned pieces.
The four CDs it has released – “Eos Guitar Quartet” (Biber 66501), “Danza ritual” (Biber 66591), “4 seasons 4 guitars” (Divox CDX 25221-2) and “quadra” (Deutsche Grammophon LC 01846) – were enthusiastically received by the critics. The Quartet signed an exclusive artist’s agreement with Universal Music in 2002.
