The string quartet TEMA was established in the fall of 2012 in Tampere. TEMA acted as house quartet at Klassisen musiikin klubi (Classical music club) in Tampere 2016-2019, having many guests such as Sami Junnonen and Eva Alkula. In 2015 TEMA toured the Baltic states where they played Finnish music from Jean Sibelius, Joonas Kokkonen and Roope Mäenpää. The musicians of TEMA share a passion for chamber music, working together, and especially the drive to explore different nuances. TEMA’s classical quartet repertoire includes quartets by Shostakovitch, Haydn, Sibelius and Dvořák, but the quartet has expanded its repertoire by co-operating with singers, other instrumentalists and contemporary composers.
