With the name of the goddess of song and the dance in Greek mythology, Terpsichore, the Quatuor Terpsycordes consists of young talented musicians from Italy, Bulgaria and Switzerland: the violinists Girolamo Bottiglieri and Raya Raytcheva, the violist Caroline Cohen and the cellist François Grin. This multi-awarded group has been mentored by members of world famous quartets such as the Budapest, Hagen, LaSalle and Mosaiques Quartets. The four musicians explore the connection between nature and the spirit through creative interpretations of classic works, and have a clearly eclectic style. Paying meticulous attention to the details of the styles of the music they play, they have also been acclaimed by the press for their reinventions of famous classics, a talent which earned them the First Prize 2001 from the Geneva Conservatory.
