QUARTET

performing on period instruments

Our String Quartet shares the purpose of looking into the great chamber works of the 18th and 19th centuries with Haydn's, Mozart's and Beethoven's quartet repertoire above all, through an historical informed approach.
As a matter of fact, we play with copies of historical instruments and we use original facsimiles and first editions where available, and we have a keen interest on finding lesser-known composers and unpublished or newly rediscovered scores.
To this regard, the Urania Records label released their Integrale dei Quartetti by Como composer Francesco Pasquale Ricci as a world premiere in November 2020.
We chose our name being inspired by the keyboard work "Aria Variata Alla Maniera Italiana" BWV 989 in a minor, by the great composer Johann Sebastian Bach, as a devotion to him and as a reminder of our musical path.

For our concerts and recordings we put to good use the fine work of musical and musicological research accomplished by eminent international foundations, as L'Archivio della Sinfonia Milanese and il Centro di Ricerche Musicali lvbeethoven.it, thanks to the material preserved in their archives.

The Alla Maniera Italiana Quartet is based in Como, and is part of the Le Dimore del Quartetto network.
