 Nox String Quartet

The Brussel-based Nox String Quartet was founded in September 2014 by Tina Čeh. Members met during their studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. The Quartet’s repertoire is centered on the classics, but with a serious emphasis on the 20th century. It is the stated goal of the quartet to include at least one modern work in each performance. Their repertoire spannes from Early Classicism, Romanticism, to the many contemporary composers including Jazz. Their purpose is to connect, develop and share their musical experience.

They are regular guests at the festivals in Belgium and abroad, performing for eminent audience at the embassies, as well enjoying intimate atmosphere of house concerts and being creative while recording in music studios.
