Formed in East Berlin in 1985, The Vogler Quartet quickly established itself as one of the finest quartets of its generation. Mastering a repertoire of over 200 works from all epochs and period music, they are widely celebrated for their extraordinary musical intelligence, highly creative playing with homogenous tone, rich nuances, powerful interpretations and unconventional programming. The four musicians studied at the Hochschule für Music Hanns Eisler in Berlin with Professor Eberhard Feltz as the mentor of their initial quartet playing. In May 1986 they came to international prominence through winning the International String Quartet Competition in Evian, with the press jury prize and a special prize for the best interpretation of a contemporary work. They were subsequently invited to study with the renowned La Salle Quartet in Basel, Switzerland and at the University of Cincinnati, USA.
