Shortly before their 30th anniversary, the Artemis Quartet go through one of their most turbulent years. Is their shared musical passion enough to weather their difficulties and losses?
The celebration of their 30th anniversary marks a special year for the Berlin-based Artemis Quartet. When co-founder and cello player Eckart Runge decides to leave the quartet in 2018 and second violinist Anthea Kreston follows him shortly after, the quartet is seriously shaken up. The musicians decide to stay together until the end of the season, so the remaining members have the chance to reconstruct the quartet. A glimpse behind the scenes, and from up close on the international stage.
