“Their music radiates in an extraordinarily transparent and expressive way“ (Südwest Presse) “hauntingly beautiful“ “vitalizing like a double espresso“ (Tiroler Tageszeitung) “impressively nonchalant, impressively entertaining“ (Der Tagesspiegel) that’s how the press is describing the singing Quartet.


Unique is the combination of classical repertoire and the self arranged works from different kinds of musical styles, which are not only played but also sung. In the sense of this all encompassing dimension, the name Orbis arose.


Founded in 2014, the quartet won after a short time the first prize and the special prize in the International Beethoven competition in Krakow, as well as the second prize in the International Brahms competition in Pörtschach.


Subsequently thereafter, they had live radio performances on rbb-Berlin, the NDR Hamburg, the Radio Philharmonic Kattowitz and invitations from well known festivals like the Tiroler Festspiele Erl, the Chamber Music Festival Salzburg, the Brandenburg Summer Concerts, the Copenhagen Summer Festival and the Montreal Chamber Music Festival.


Their most important musical influences came from Prof. Friedemann Weigle (Aremis Quartet), through chamber music studies a the Salzburg Mozarteum under Prof. Reiner Schmidt (Hagen Quartet) and the University of Music “Hanns Eisler“ Berlin under Prof. Eberhard Feltz and Prof. Andreas Reiner (Rosamunde Quartet).

During the course of the European Chamber Music Festival they greatly benefitted from the tuition of Prof. Hatto Beyerle (Alban Berg Quartet) and Prof. Johannes Meissl (Aris Quartet). 


Since the beginning, one of their goals has been to make their music more accessible to a wider audience. Therefore they not only play in classic concert halls, but also in bars and clubs. All the while being involved in educational projects like the Berlin Youth Philharmonic.
