Quatriola Ensemble

Flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon: this is the Quatriola Ensemble. After finishing their Master studies in the conservatory, Gemma Tripiana (flute), Matteo Costanzi (oboe), Maria Rosaria Della Ragione (clarinet) and Clara Alija (bassoon) were brought together by the same love for chamber music and by the same desire to bring some ‘fresh air’ on stage, that's how the Quatriola Ensemble was born. What makes this ensemble unique is the variety of repertoire and instrumental combinations. The Quatriola Ensemble offers thematic programs in a way that the audience can enjoy original works, transcriptions, and also music that was composed for different combinations (quartets, trio's, duo's en solo's).
Feel free to contact us for more information about our programs.
