Noûs (nùs) is an Ancient Greek word whose meaning is mind and therefore rationality, but also inspiration and creativity. The Noûs Quartet, composed of four young Italian musicians, was founded in 2011 at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano, Switzerland. The Quartet received its training at the Accademia “Walter Stauffer” in Cremona in the class of the Quartetto di Cremona, at the Musik Akademie in Basel. In 2015 the Quartet was awarded the “Piero Farulli” Prize, given to the best emerging chamber music group in the current year, as part of the XXXIV “Franco Abbiati” Award, the most prestigious Italian music critics award.
