The younger members of the Berliner Philharmoniker also uphold the Philharmoniker tradition of becoming involved in chamber music alongside their orchestral activities. In the 2012/13 season, four musicians founded the Varian Fry Quartet, named after the American journalist and freedom fighter Varian Fry, to devote themselves intensively to the repertoire of the string quartet.In April 2013, the time had come: The Varian Fry Quartet gave its first public concert at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden – the start of an exciting chamber music journey.
