Biography
Admired for their virtuosity, vibrancy and energy, the Kontras String Quartet is rapidly becoming one of the most sought after chamber groups on the scene. “Kontras”, which means “contrasts” in Afrikaans, is a fitting name for the unique ensemble comprised of artists from four different parts of the world: Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America. It is this wonderful diversity that informs the group’s interest in music from Russia, South Africa, Japan, and the U.S. (the quartet members’ home countries), and inspires Kontras to present the traditional quartet literature in a new and unexpected light.
