The Vogler Quartet, still featuring the four original members, has been founded in 1985 and it has secured a place for itself among the top chamber music ensembles, thanks to its great individual and joint skills.

The Vogler Quartet‘s repertoire covers both the classical literature for string quartet from Haydn to Bartók and the Second Viennese School, as well as brand-new works, giving them an unusual range. Modern compositions have been written for them and their spectrum of collaboration ranges from a quintet featuring a piano, clarinet, viola or cello, to works scored for an octet.

The CD “Paris Days & Berlin Nights” (Steinway&Sons) with Ute Lemper got a Nomination for the 2013 Grammy Awards, in June 2014 Vogler Quartet and the Berlin Label Phil.harmonie released a CD live from Konzerthaus Berlin, featuring Tangos by Astor Piazolla and Marcelo Nisinman and in fall 2014 they added to their already extensive discography a complete recording of the Dvorak quartets.
In 2016 they released their third Dvorak album (CPO) with the String Quintet op. 97 and the Piano Quintet op. 81 together with Tatjana Masurenko and Oliver Triendl.

The Vogler Quartet have their own recital series at the Konzerthaus Berlin, they appear at the annual festival “Music in Drumcliffe” in the Irish town  Sligo, and are responsible for the artistic direction of the “Kammermusiktage Homburg/Saar”. In addition, they run the children‘s music festival in Kassel “Nordhessische Kindermusiktage”, which has won several prizes.

The members of the Vogler Quartet are teaching in different Colleges in Europe and overseas.
