Experienced as recitalists, soloists and orchestral performers, four international prize-winning guitarists decided to combine their talent, forming Quatuor Eclisses in 2012. The group was forged in the corridors of the Conservatoire de Paris during their studies.Besides their clear technical ability, Quatuor Eclisses are committed to performing diverse repertoire, from unknown and original works, to Argentinian tango, Italian Opera, Baroque, contemporary, and many more styles.
