Ysaÿe Quartet (1984)

Ysaÿe Quartet (1984)

The Ysaÿe Quartet (Quatuor Ysaÿe) is a French string quartet that was founded in 1984 by students at the Paris Conservatoire named after the original Ysaÿe Quartet.

Its current members are:

* Guillaume Sutre (violin) (previously Christophe Giovaninetti)
* Luc-Marie Aguera (violin) (previously Romano Tommasini)
* Miguel da Silva (viola)
* Yovan Markovitch (cello) (previously Carlos Dourthe, then Michel Poulet, then Marc Coppey, then Francois Salque)

The ensemble undertook studies with members of the Amadeus Quartet in Cologne from 1986 to 1989. It won prizes at competitions in Trapani (2nd), Portsmouth (2nd) and Evian (1st). The quartet has won admiration for its recordings of the quartets of Debussy and Ravel, and, with pianist Pascal Rogé, of the quintets of Fauré. The quartet teaches at CNR in Paris and give masterclasses in the mountain city of Flaine in France.
