Quartet of Critics

The association’s jurors have appeared in public since 2010. They sit down in groups of three or four, as a trio or as a quartet, to discuss a work live in front of an audience and to compare different recorded interpretations. So far, this talk show format has met 97 times in 35 cities.

In 2020 all quartets have been canceled due to the corona crisis.
