Kairós Quartett Salzburg

Martin Hinterholzer, double bass
Since its foundation in 1989, the Kairós Quartet has gained a reputation through many performances in Salzburg, notably in the Mirabell Palace (Salzburger Schlosskonzerte), in the Residenz and the Kongresshaus, as well as in the Festival Hall in 1994, to mark the 40th anniversary of Wilhelm Furtwängler's death. The Quartet has been invited to perform in prestigious concert series including the Brahms Festival in Frankfurt am Main and Festivals on the Bodensee (Lake Constance) and in Lugano, and has toured extensively in Germany, Spain, France and Italy.

Since the Quartet's approach to music-making is very much in the spirit of Wilhelm Furtwängler, they were glad to accept the invitation of the Schlote concert agency to undertake a major tour through four countries in autumn 2004, to mark the 50th anniversary of Furtwängler's death. Venues included Gasteig/ Munich, Reichsaal Rathaus/Regensburg, Schloss Salem (South-West German Radio, live recording), Schloss Reinbek, Stadthalle Unna, Theatre/Duisburg, Comoedienhaus/Hanau, Semperaula/ Zurich, Philharmonie/Stuttgart, Ettelbrück/Luxembourg, as well as a concert in Furtwängler's house on Lake Geneva in the presence of Elisabeth Furtwängler, his vivacious 94-year-old widow. In the course of this tour, the Kairós Quartet, together with the distinguished pianist Christian Seibert, performed the 70-minute Piano Quintet, as well as other works by Furtwängler, and recorded this major work for West German Broadcasting.
The Südkurier newspaper published a critique of the Bodensee Festival concert on 22 May 2004: "Not only did the quintet create an enormous, almost palpable tension in the hall, but they also sustained it throughout their performance. The musicians made the audience hold its breath until the long-awaited final resolution."
