“The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the premiere of the new piece composed by Elfman. When that point in the show arrived, the entire audience was buzzing with excitement.”
The Daily Nebraskan

The Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet is one of the few existing ensembles of this instrumentation, in contrast to the better represented form, the String Quartet. This ensemble has existed as a Berlin Philharmonic chamber music ensemble since 1985, and unites three permanent members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, violist Matthew Hunter, cellist Knut Weber, and violinist Luis Esnaola, with renowned concert pianist Markus Groh.

This ensemble is committed to not only representing the standard repertoire of classical, romantic and modern works, but also finding undiscovered masterpieces of the literature that encompasses over 400 works.

The Quartet distinguished itself during its acclaimed debut tour of the US in February 2018 with the premiere of Danny Elfman's Piano Quartet, a work co-commissioned by the Lied Center in Lincoln, Nebraska and the group itself.

“ evening that will be memorable as the quartet’s first Lincoln performance and even more so for the premiere of Elfman’s brilliant composition.”

“[The Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet]...showed an extreme amount of talent and dedication to their art. Each of the pieces they played was a pleasure to listen to, and the Elfman piece in particular was a blast.”
