Bach's The Art of Fugue offers us profoundly sensual music, magnificent, poetic, colorful, thrilling, meditative, temperamental, intended for the ears of all times and deeply human." That's how the quartett itself characterizes Bach's masterpiece and opposes Stefano Pierini's Cantai un tempo (dopo una lettura di Monteverdi) to the magnum opus which was especially composed for the delian:: quartett. The namesake of the delian:: quartett is the Greek god Apollo who was worshipped as god of the fine arts, the muses and especially music, and also named Delian after his place of birth, the island of Delos. "What is outstanding about this Quartet", stated the Hessian Broadcasting Company in October 2008, "is, firstly, the absolutely vibrant, personal coloring of their interpretations and the ability to also spontaneously react with interest to what the public shows, to absorb their vibrations and energies and transform them into music. This makes every concert a unique experience."
