The ensemble made its debut in 2008 at the Berlin Konzerthaus, performing Bach’s C major concerto (BWV 1061a) in a version for four marimbas. Both the transcription and the performance were praised for respecting Bach’s original score and the spirit of historically informed performance. Since then, the Wave Quartet, placing a special emphasis on Bach and contemporary repertoire, has appeared at such venues as Salzburg’s Grosses Festspielhaus (with the Mozarteum Orchestra) and the Athenaeum Bucharest (with the Romanian National Symphony Orchestra). Concerts and masterclasses have taken the Wave Quartet around both Europe and the Far East, a region where the ensemble has enjoyed great success since its early days.


The highlights from the famous opera „Carmen" by Bizet, pop hits like Ed Sheeran’s „Perfect", Sting’s "Message in a Bottle“ and Suzanne Vega’s „Gypsy“, as well as the established "Udacrep Akubrad" by Avner Dorman! This mix of opera, pop and Israeli music reflects a big musical spectrum of the Wave Quartet.
