About the Arod Quartet

With all four members in their early twenties, the Paris-based Arod Quartet has already dazzled chamber-music lovers in concerts at such prestigious venues as the Auditorium of the Louvre in Paris and the Verbier Festival in Switzerland. The Arod quickly came to international attention when they won the coveted First Prize of the 2016 ARD International Music Competition in Munich, having already taken First Prize at the Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition in Copenhagen. In 2018-19 the Arod will made its American debut, featuring its inaugural Carnegie Hall performance. They record exclusively for Erato Warner Classics, which released their debut Mendelssohn disc in Fall 2017. The group takes its name from Legolas’s horse in J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic Lord of the Rings trilogy; in Tolkien’s mythic Rohirric language, Arod means ‘swift.’
