    Quatuor à cordes No. 2 en Ré Majeur: II. Scherzo (Arr. Guillaume Berceau) - Alexander Borodin,
Born in 2015, this young ensemble has been playing in many festivals, in France and throughout the world.
It is though in 2017 that Zahir Quartet stands out winning the first prize of the 9th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition (Japan), earning an international recognition. They have been ever since invited to prestigious venues such as London’s Wigmore Hall, the Philharmonie de Paris, the Folles Journées de Nantes, Montpellier’s Festival de Radio France, the Festivals des forêts et de Sully, l’Acropolis de Nice and Tokyo’s Toppan Hall.
Currently in a residency at the Singer-Polignac Foundation, Zahir Quartet is also the 2016 FNAPEC International Chamber Music Competition laureate. They have won the first prize at the 2020 Vienna International Music Competition and at the Berliner and Manhattan editions as well. They have been supported by pianist Jean-François Zygel since they took part in «La Boîte à Musique», a French television show.
Sharing the same artistic sensibility, a sharp thoroughness and the will of renewing the musical scenery: these are the reasons that brought the ensemble together. Like Paulo Coelho’s hero in Zahir, the four saxophonists are very committed into pushing forward the quartet genre. The musicians underline a strong curiosity and creativity performing an original repertoire, thanks to their meeting with many composers and collaborating with a lot of artists like David Bismuth, Félicien Brut, Adèle Charvet, Les Chanteurs d’Oiseaux...
