Formed in 2014, the Cologne Guitar Quartet is an international ensemble based in Germany. Bringing forth to the group four different nationalities (Germany, Israel, Portugal and Greece), its members were all students of prof. Aussel at the prestigious Hochschule für Musik Köln, Germany. In 2015, the Cologne Guitar Quartet was granted with a 1st prize at the ‘Karlsruher Wettbewerb für die Interpretation zeitgenössischer Musik’ competition and in the following year received a Live Music Now’ Scholarship from the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.

Their repertoire ranges from early and classical music combined with folkloric repertoire from different countries, to modern music by living composers. The Cologne Guitar Quartet is also working on widening the repertoire for guitar quartet by making new arrangements of orchestral and chamber music works. They are collaborating with composers such as Feliu Gasull and Eitan Steinberg and in 2016 performed the wolrd premiere of Dutch composer Cynthie van Eijden's ‘Landschaft mit Landschaft hinter dem Horizont’ for guitar quartet and orchestra together with the HfMT Aachen Symphony Orchestra.

Recognized for their captivating and virtuosic performances, the quartet was invited to perform in various festivals such as ‘speGTRa’ in Aachen, ‘Les Musicales’ in Redon (France) and ‘Zeitgenuss’ in Karlsruhe.
