Alban Kwartet was born in 2018 with the objective of combining composers of the First and Second Viennese Schools. Their programmes thus frequently feature works by composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Joseph Haydn on one hand, and Anton Webern or Alban Berg on the other hand. Recently, they extended their reach to another Viennese composer, Franz Schubert, but also to the Dutch composer Willem Piiper, who was influend by Arnold Schönberg in the writing of his 3rd string quartet. Additionally, they have a repertoire of light music suitable for weddings, birthdays, or other events. The four musicians currently study together at the HKU Utrechts Conservatorium.
