The string quartet for a dignified funeral service
Music is emotion, and so we are engaged not only for joyful occasions, but also for occasions of farewell. Our string quartet is experienced in providing music for funeral services and memorial services.
When a loved one passes away, there are a lot of tasks to take care of in addition to the loss. If desired, we will make all musical arrangements with the funeral home and the funeral orator or priest, so that the funeral service can be arranged appropriately and with dignity.
How does the last farewell sound?
We will be happy to help you choose the right music for the funeral service. In addition to the favorite music of the deceased, our string quartet naturally plays funeral music as well as church music, during which the congregation can silently commemorate. In this respect, we are guided entirely by your ideas and wishes. We are also personally available if you have any questions. Of course, at short notice and even late at night.
Concerts and Recitals
Our program? Your choice!

If you like, we moderate our concerts, musicologically sound and with the necessary humor to really inspire any audience for our music. If you are interested, we will be happy to advise you, personally on the phone or via WhatsApp and e-mail.
What distinguishes a professional string quartet?
For a good string quartet, each of the four musicians must really master his instrument. This requires many years of daily practice. But that’s not all, of course. Musicality, concert experience and, of course, talent are indispensable components of a successful chamber music career. When all this comes together, the real work can begin: Coming together as an ensemble. To find a common sound that leaves room for the individuality of each musician, but finds its true strength in playing together, an ensemble needs a lot of time.
Some of us from the Astoria String Quartet have been playing together successfully for over ten years, with recordings on WDR and NDR as well as numerous awards. Our activities in Germanies leading orchestras, solo performances and competition experience round off our profile and help us to win over our audience time and again. In addition to musical qualities, it is especially important nowadays to be professional not only on the instrument. Reliability, commitment and flexibility are virtues that we live in our string quartet.
