Inspired by the exhibition “L’Archet Révolutionnaire ” held in London in 2015, the Akos Quartet starts to explore the historical interpretation by applying original classical bows. They have offered since it’s beginning varied concert programs with both classical and modern bows depending on the repertoire approached. They have already performed in many venues and festivals such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, Schloss Nymphenburg München, Academy of Athens, Festival Format Raisins, Festival Flam’, Le Chant de la Rive, Les Musicales de Ristolas… and appears punctually in the French radio program “Générations France Musique, le live” presented by Clément Rochefort.
