Jörg Widmann “Jagdquartett“

What a joy to hear the Signum Quartet‘s recording of my Jagdquartett on harmonia mundi! Technical perfection and precision paired with wild furore and maximum energy. There is exuberant enthusiasm, crazy ferocity, existential fear, boisterousness, madness in all of it. I couldn’t be happier.—Jörg Widmann, July 2018

Schubert “Aus der Ferne“

Our album “Aus der Ferne” for PENTATONE has been awarded the DIAPASON D’OR for September 2018.



“Fury, tenderness, terror, sardonic humour and resignation were here in a journey that left the listener bruised and breathless“—The Times

Aus der Ferne
“The quartet play transparently and eloquently, without a hint of sentimentality, in performances that deal unflinchingly with the music’s latent violence. The slow movement of the A minor Quartet, in particular, veers terrifyingly into the darkness“—Gramophone

Aus der Ferne
“one of the most sensitive interpretations ever recorded.”—Diapason

“The Signum Quartet’s performance was a single multifaceted paragraph of tremendous cumulative power”—The Strad

“Chamber music at its finest.“ —FAZ
