LESS IS MORE とは、建築家ミース・ファン・デル・ローエの言葉で「より少ないものは、より豊か」という意味を持ち、 簡潔なデザインの魅力や、シンプルな生活の価値を教えてくれます。私たちはローエの言葉を念頭に、弦楽四重奏の演奏活動を通して、日本人ならではの美意識や、熊野の魅力を世界に発信しようとしています。 クラシックとジャズを融合させた独創的な音楽は、NYの大学の授業で取り上げられ、テレビCMや映画音楽に採用されるなど、内外の熱い注目を集めています。 
 
 “ LESS IS MORE,” is a statement by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It means ‘the less, the richer’ and speaks for the beauty of simple design and Minimalism, in other words, aesthetics of subtraction. Apparently Rohe conceived this statement when he was watching a Japanese garden. Keeping this Rohe’s statement in mind, we have been trying to convey Japanese people’s unique sense of beauty and the charm of the Kumano district to all the world through our music performances of the String Quartet. Our unique and original music, blending classical music, jazz and rock, was introduced and taught in classes at a college in New York City, adopted in a TV commercial and has attracted a great deal of attention both in Japan and international.
