Quartetto Noûs

A chamber group defying the odds of sound


My Bio

Noûs (nùs) is a Greek word whose meaning is 'mind', and thence 'rationality', but also 'inspiration' and 'creativity'.

Quartetto Noûs, formed in 2011, has established itself in a short time as one of the most interesting chamber music ensemble of its generation.
Its immersive performances are the result of a professional training where the Italian tradition and the most influential European schools are combined.

In 2015 received the Piero Farulli Prize, given to the best emerging chamber music group of that year and the Una Vita nella Musica 2015 Award at La Fenice Theatre, Venice:

“…for establishing itself in just a few years as one of the most promising Italian chamber music group and for displaying, early in its career, maturity of approach to the great string quartet literature…”

The Quartetto Noûs has collaborated with renowned artists such Tommaso Lonquich, Andrea Lucchesini, Alain Meunier, Sonig Tchakerian, Bruno Canino, Boris Petrushansky, Alessandro Taverna, Gloria Campaner, Golda Vainberg-Tatz.

In Italy the Quartetto Noûs performs regularly for the most important festivals and concert seasons.
Further afield the quartet is regularly invited to perform in Germany, Switzerland, England, France, Spain, Canada, United States, South Korea and China, Brazil.

The Quartetto Noûs has recorded for labels such as Brilliant Classics, Tactus, DaVinci Edition and Warner Classics.

In 2021 the quartet started to record the complete Shostakovic's String Quartets cycle for the Brilliant Classics label.

Performance Highlight



…this recording by the Quartetto Noûs has an exceptionally good sound…the superb sound given to the Noûs really does make a difference. It is simultaneously richer and in closer focus.

(MusicWeb International - David McDade)

Decisive and unanimous, the Noûs had the measure of the piece, as well as energy and clear heads.

(The Strad)

The renaissance of the string quartet in Italy: among the most important successful groups, we certainly point out the “Quartetto Noûs”.
