Founded in 2015 by musicians from the Conservatoires Supérieures in Paris, Lyon, and Brussels, the Lontano Quartet (formerly the Koltes Quartet) stands out for its predilection for the repertoire of modern music. The members of the Lontano Quartet benefited from the advice of Raphaël Merlin (Ebène Quartet) Marc and Guy Danel (Danel Quartet), Zoltán Toth (Ravel Quartet), Emmanuel Haratyk (Manfred Quartet), Jeanne-Marie Conquer (Intercontemporain Ensemble), Stěpán Ježek (Bennewitz Quartet) and Petr Holman (Zemlinsky Quartet).  


The Lontano Quartet has collaborated with artists such as violinist Alexis Galpérine, clarinetist Michel Portal, cellist Dominique de Williencourt, saxophonist Vincent Lê Quang, mezzo-soprano Amaya Dominguez and pianist Sébastien Vichard.




    Founded in 2015 by two friends in the corridors of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris - then under the first name of "Koltès" - the Lontano Quartet has since forged solid links, united by a very particular attraction for the turmoils and clashes of the 20th century. 

    Their first album, recorded in the marvelous Notre Dame de Toute Grace church in the Plateau d'Assy (Haute-Savoie) and in the studios of Seine Musicale (Paris), testifies to this love for modernity - backed by the romantic Antonin Dvorak - which never ceases to amaze.
