The Gyldfeldt Quartet was founded in early 2016. The quartet has visited a number of renowned masterclasses such as the International Chamber Music Campus of Jeunesses Musicales Germany, ProQuartet in Paris and the Accademia Musicale Chigiana and has been coached by international instructors like Günter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet), Eberhard Feltz, Norman Fischer (Concord String Quartet), Yves Sandos (Amaryllis Quartet), Dirk Mommerz (Fauré Quartet) as well as members of the Vogler Quartet. The Quartet has been part of the Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now Scholarship since 2017.
The Gyldfeldt Quartet has performed both in Germany and abroad e.g. Sweden, Switzerland, France, Italy and played at different festivals like Musiksommer am Zürichsee in association with the Festival Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – and the Kurt Weill Fest in Dessau.
