Since its foundation in 1975 the Moyzes Quartet has been one of the most famous chamber ensembles in Slovakia. The members of the Quartet graduated from the Bratislava Academy of Music and Performing Arts (under professor T.Gasparek). They promoted their studies at Hochschule fur Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna (under professors F.Samohyl, G.Pichler).
During their studies they were already given several laureate awards at both, domestic and international contests (e.g. in Evian, France). In the period of 1986 - 2005 the Moyzes Quartet belonged to the ensembles of the Slovak Philarmonic.
The Quartet has successfully represented the Slovak musical culture almost in all European countries as well as behind the border of our continent, in Japan, India, Marocco, the USA, Canada, Korea and Cuba. In 2000 the Moyzes Quartet was awarded the Frico Kafenda Prize and at the same time the Critics Prize. Its repertoire encompasses all styles including works of contemporary Slovak composers, some of whom directly dedicated their pieces to the Quartet.
