The Akitania Quartet was created in 2014 by musicians from Bordeaux. They have appeared on various scenes in France, namely in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine: Eglises Romane Festival in the Gironde and Musiques à croquer Festival in Bordeaux. They participated in the 2019 Folle Journée of Nantes. In Europe, they have, among others, toured in Ireland.
They mainly play Eastern Countries music (Armenia, Rumania, Azerbaijan…) while never leaving out classical, romantic and 20th century composers (Haydn, Schubert, Dvorak or Debussy).
They also regularly work with composer Pierre Thilloy.
