The Quartet, composed of Gunther Sanin and Francesco Quaranta – violins, Luca Pozza – viola, Sara Airoldi – cello, with the collaboration of Patrizia Quarta – piano, was born from the idea of transposing the atmosphere of the most beautiful amphitheater of the world, where for centuries opera music has enchanted and moved, and to reinterpret the art of nineteenth-century melodrama in an original message. Trained and perfected at some of the most prestigious international academies, these masters have been animating the artistic essence of the Verona Arena Orchestra for years.
