The Energie Nove String Quartet

The Energie Nove String Quartet take their name from an early 20th century Italian political and literary magazine. Like the periodical, Energie Nove seek to express the dynamism and the energy of the new. The members of the quartet have each won numerous competitions and performed at the highest level. As musicians, they are passionate about the string quartet and in 2008 have come together to animate the music through new and creative interpretations.
Their close collaboration with the Swiss National Radio (RSI) and the record label Dynamic resulted in the recent production and release of the Prokofiev string quartets (Dynamic : CDS726). The Energie Nove String Quartet and Dynamic are also proud to announce a world premiere recording of a critically edited and ''Urtext'' version of the two quartets by Leoš Janáček in autumn 2014.
The quartet also work with the Swiss National Television (SRG SSR) and have been featured in the recent video production of Beethoven's Quartets op. 74 and op. 95. Their future television output will include a quintet collaboration with the pianist Alexander Lonquich. Recently, they have joined forces with the famous pianist Ivo Pogorelić in a series of concerts dedicated to F. Chopin.
The Energie Nove have a busy concert schedule and their recent tour of Germany and performances at the Edinburgh Festival saw them receive critical and audience acclaim. The future performances of the quartet will include concerts at the MiTo Festival, Società dei Concerti di Milano and at the special edition of the GOG (Genoa) dedicated to the entire cycle of string quartets by Dmitri Shostakovich.
For the occasion of hundred and fifty years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and
Italy, the Energie Nove were invited by the Swiss General Consulate in Milan to present an extraordinary concert. They had the honour of playing on the instruments belonging to the Walter Stauffer Foundation (Cremona, Italy), videlicet the violins by Guarneri del Gesu and Ceruti, a Viola by Brothers Amati and a Stradivarius cello.
The four members of Energie Nove are Hans Liviabella, Barbara Ciannamea, Ivan Vukčević and Felix Vogelsang. Respectively, they play on the violins by Ferdinando Gagliano (1764) and Carlo Giuseppe Testore (1710), a viola by Joseph Gagliano (1789) and a cello by Don Nicolo Amati (1730).
