This community of the bow was born in 2013 at the Conservatoire de Paris. All the members of the quartet studied there, benefiting in particular from the teaching of Jean Sulem. Starting out as a group of students, burning to get their fingers on the finest pages of the repertoire, the ensemble chose as their first outing the FNAPEC competition. The Quatuor Arod won the first prize there (2014), which for them opened the doors of the ProQuartet residency–the European Centre for Chamber Music.
