Vertavo Quartet is internationally recognised as one of the most masterful string quartets playing today. Since four very young teenagers got together in Norway in 1984, Vertavo’s performances – now rich in maturity and of the most captivating sound quality – delight audiences wherever they play. 

‘Assiduous work, solid cohesion and the urge to tell a story in music – this is our holy trinity,’ says violist Berit Cardas.

Thirty-seven years on since their formation, Vertavo are most probably the world’s longest performing all-female string quartet. Øyvor, Berit and Bjørg are all founder members and Annabelle has been with the quartet for the past ten years.

Vertavo play at all the major concert venues in the world. They tour throughout Europe, Scandinavia and the US and are invited to participate in some of the most prestigious festivals and at the greatest chamber music venues such as the Wigmore Hall in London, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Carnegie Hall in New York. We look very much forward to welcome them at the Troldhaugen stage.
