The Atenea Quartet was founded in 2019 in Barcelona. An internationally acclaimed ensemble, dedicated to exploring the vast string quartet repertoire, the Quartet was a finalist in the 2023 Young Classical Artists Trust international auditions and is currently based in Basel, Switzerland.

Renowned for its performances of classical and contemporary works, the Quartet has received numerous awards, including the "Prix Credit Suisse Jeunes Solistes 2023," first prizes in the Competition el Primer Palau 2022 and Orpheus Swiss Chamber Music Competition 2021, among others.

In the 2023/24 season the quartet took part in numerous international competitions, including the Karol Szymanowski International Music Competition, Borciani String Quartet Competition and the Geneva String Quartet Competition.

The Quartet has been invited to prestigious festivals such as the Lucerne Festival, the Barcelona String Quartet Biennial, the Schubertíada de Vilabertran, the Musikdorf Ernen Festival, the Kulturfest Resonanzen Sils, the WIssembourg International Music Festival, Festival d’Aix en Provance and the Juan March Foundation. It has also premiered works by composers like Raquel García-Tomás, Antoni Ros-Marbà, and Mauro Hertig. Future engagements include a recital at the Festival de Barcelona Obertura.

Currently the ensemble is continuing its musical training at the Hochschule für Musik FHNW in Basel, under the advice of Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Silvia Simionescu (Gringolts Quartet), Claudio Martínez Mehner, Anton Kernjak and Anna Gebert.
