FOUR KINGS, ONE KAISER
Kaiser Quartett is a contemporary string quartet, founded 2004 in Hamburg, Germany initially under the name Strings DeLuxe. The founding members, violinists Adam Zolynski and Jansen Folkers and cellist Martin Bentz were joined by Ingmar Süberkrüb on the viola in 2012. The quartet first came together to record music for the animated children series « Little Amadeus » under the musical direction of Martin Bentz. Following its broadcast on German children’s channel KiKa and in over 60 countries worldwide, in 2006 « Little Amadeus » won a prestigious Klassic Echo award.
Kaiser Quartett is a sought after ensemble for studio productions and live concerts by artists from a wide variety of musical genres and can be heard on numerous Gold and Platinum albums.
In 2011 the quartet began their collaboration with pianist and Grammy award winner ChillyGonzales, playing at concerts in Hamburg and Berlin for the release of the pianist’s “The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales” album that combines orchestra and rap. There followed a series of concerts at the Philharmonies of Berlin and Munich, the Salle Pleyel in Paris and the now infamous annual New Year’s concert at Philharmonie Cologne. In 2015 release of Chambers, an album recorded with Chilly Gonzales, produced by Renaud Letang (Manu Chao, Feist) and featuring Kaiser Quartett that re-imagines Romantic-era chamber music as today’s addictive pop, with the attitude of a rapper. A year long world tour in support of Chambers, was the opportunity to see the Kaiser Quartett live in the world’s most prestigious venues in Europe and the United Kingdom, with stops in Canada and the United States. Recently the quartet collaborated with artists like “room29” Chilly Gonzales & Jarvis Cocker, Boys Noize, Daniel Hope, Boy, Gregory Porter (Elbjazz 2017) and is working on their first solo project.
Over the last Years we played on a lot of Albums of Great Artists form different Backgrounds.
