Since its foundation in 2003, the Ornati Quartet has developed an important activity, both on stage and in teaching.

Its repertoire spans all periods, bringing together a deep understanding and total commitment in its interpretations, including classical recordings, such as the Quintets with two violas by José Palomino for the Patrimonio Musical Hispano of the Spanish Society of Musicology, to a recent contemporary commission recording the complete string quartets of Juan Manuel Marrero.

His concerts include, besides music for string quartet, such as the recent tour for the 36th International Music Festival of the Canary Islands with music by Beethoven for the celebration of its 250th anniversary, other formats such as the social, bringing music to people and places in situations of vulnerability or isolation, as well as the didactic with specific programmes that bring young people closer to art in general.

Among the collaborations on stage are musicians of the stature of Juan Pérez Floristan, Nancy Fabiola Herrera and Rodolfo Mederos, seeking a balance between the tradition of different styles.

They are members of the Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria, where they live, and regular collaborators of the International Bach Festival, of which violist Adriana Ilieva is a founding member.
