“The quartet is already one of the finest: perfectly unanimous, colorful and original.”
– Alfred Brendel 

Launched in Berlin in 2019 and inspired by the Esperanto word for "lionheart," Leonkoro Quartet is comprised of string-players Jonathan and Lukas Schwarz, Amelie Wallner, and Mayu Konoe. Their swift rise in classical music is highlighted by their victory at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition and their selection for the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists program. Capturing hearts in Europe's premier venues and festivals, Leonkoro's blend of youthful exuberance and mature musical insight makes them a standout ensemble of their generation.
