In 2011 the Galatea quartet released their first CD for Sony Classical entitled ‘Landscapes’, featuring works of Ernst Bloch. Formed in 2005, the quartet worked in its early days with Stephan Görner of the Carmina Quartet in Zurich and the Artemis Quartet in Berlin. Recognition for the quartet came early on with International Competition prizes in Geneva (Third Prize in 2006), Osaka (Third Prize in 2008) , Bordeaux (Rimbotti Prize in 2010) . In addition to their competition success, the quartet has performed on tour throughout Europe at venues such as Wigmore Hall London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Tonhalle Zurich, as well as performances in Japan and India.
