The Henschel Quartet is delighted to announce their new member, Catalin Desaga, and is excited by the musical expertise and personal qualities he will bring to the quartet.
After 14 years as a touring string quartet player, Daniel Bell has decided the time is right to reduce his travel schedule and focus on his concertmaster career, and has brought his 6-year membership of the Henschel Quartet to a fitting conclusion with their successful tour of Japan in 2016. Both Daniel Bell and the quartet nevertheless look forward to many future years of friendship and musical collaboration.

Blog by The Henschel Quartet at The Strad: 10 ways to achieve long-term success with your string quartet

Jonas Becker

The Henschel Quartet from Germany celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. Here the group gives tips on achieving longevity in a chamber career

To achieve longevity, small chamber music ensembles need to concentrate not only on an ensemble body of sound but also on developing an ensemble spirit. In addition to musical and technical mastery,  and quite apart from paying attention to what the external charisma requires – unique sales point (usp), creative programmes, use of strong marketing tools, networking, partners and agents – there is that very important internal charisma which the ensemble members need to nurture and protect. An ensemble with great inner strength will go on, even when times are hard. However, when the internal cosmos is disturbed, even great success as an ensemble will not guarantee longevity.

1. The key issue is joy. We all enjoy performing great music, of course. Just as importantly, however, every ensemble member needs to also enjoy each other’s company and value each other’s skills. Respecting each other’s personalities, and welcoming difference as an engine of development, creates the best atmosphere. If every member maintains their focus on the joy of making music together as an important priority and pleasure in their life, setbacks will hurt less.
