Quartetto Gelato

Virtuosic showpieces, romantic arias, pyrotechnical solos, blazing gypsy show pieces, multi-instrument mastery and a World Accordion Champion – this is Quartetto Gelato, a popular and highly unusual classical quartet with an exotic blend of musical virtuosity, artistic passion and humor. Classical in training, eclectic by design, Quartetto Gelato not only thrills audiences with its multi-instrument mastery, but also offers the bonus of a brilliant operatic tenor.

Larger audiences are inevitable not only because the quartet’s members are fine musicians but also because they have learned to mix entertainment and music.
