The Matangi Quartet was founded in 1999 by four young musicians then studying at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and the Conservatory of Rotterdam. As a chamber ensemble, the Matangi's main focus is to let its audience palpably experience the energy, passion and excitement that is inherent in all good music.

In 2002 Matangi was awarded the prestigious Kersjes van de Groenekan Award, an annual prize awarded to exceptional chamber music talent in the Netherlands.

In 2003, Matangi completed a two year, full time course at the Netherlands String Quartet Academy under the direction of Stefan Metz (cellist, Orlando Quartet). At the Academy, the Matangi Quartet had the opportunity to take lessons from internationally renowned musicians, including the members of the Amadeus Quartet.

The Matangi Quartet has since developed into a respected ensemble in the Dutch chamber music scene and abroad. With their impassioned playing and smart presentation, the members of Matangi epitomize a new generation of classical musicians. They are often characterized as communicative, provocative and refreshingly versatile.

The quartet has also been invited to perform in a variety festivals and concert series, including the Delft Chamber Music Festival, the Amsterdam Grachtenfestival, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the Festival van Carthage in Tunisia, the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai and the International Conservatoire Festival in St Petersburg. Since 2005 the quartet has presented its own concert series in the Beurs van Berlage, in Amsterdam.

The Matangi Quartet has released several CDs on Challenge Records International which have all received great critical acclaim. The latest releases were the CDs Mendelssohn (2009) and Candybox (2010). Together with the viola da gamba player Ralph Rousseau the quartet won the Edison Audience Award 2009, for their CD Chansons d'amour (Challenge Records 2008).
