2008 the Chapelle Quartet, with the support of the Kulturbüro der Stadt Aachen, developed a concept for a series of string quartet concerts especially for the Couven Museum. Four times a year, the four musicians gather at four o’clock on a Sunday afternoon to play four prominent works of quartet literature.


In the Couven Museum, also known fondly as Aachen’s „Front Room“, with its permanent exhibition of a range of middle class interior decors from Rococo to Biedermeier, the Chapelle Quartet have established a wonderful venue and at the same time a „workshop“ for music-making.
