The performance by the group Quatuor Diotima will held at the Galle Face Hotel on September 25. The free show is composed by the Quartet n7 of Franz Shubert, the String Quartet of Claude Debussy and "From my life", written by the Czech composer Bedich Smetana.

Founded by graduates of the Conservatoires of Paris and Lyon, Quatuor Diotima has performed in festivals and staged concerts all over Europe. Through its extensive touring, it has managed to gather an impressive following and to earn a solid reputation worldwide.

Quatuor Diotima's repertoire ranges from Haydn to various composers of our time, encompassing the Classical period, French Romanticism, the early Twentieth Century, and a selection of major works from the last 50 years.
