SIMN 2024 programme


The desire of the members of the Arcadia Quartet to promote classical music at the highest level, combined with their desire to share their experiences with future generations of musicians, led to the establishment of a workshop – Arcadia Chamber Music Classes, and the invitation of Sabin Argintaru to join this project is linked to the same goal, namely to provide the experience of playing in an already well-established ensemble, working intensively on details, to offer a highly intense perspective on the approach to chamber works.
