Co-founded in 1996 by violinist Henry Gronnier and violist Thomas Diener, the Rossetti Piano Quartet is named after 19th century Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, whose artistic ideals about the use of color, poetry, and naturalism are embodied in the Quartet’s musicianship. The aesthetic depth and insight each brings to the group helps create the intimate, provocative atmosphere that has become the Rossetti trademark.
