The Bass_4 quartet is a project by four young musicians that seeks to obscure the boundaries between classical, tango and pop music.

It is Lithuania’s only quartet of upright basses. The ensemble was inspired by the idea of rewriting standards as well as popularising the bass as an instrument and demonstrating its uniqueness. The bass is not just an orchestral instrument, it can also be a wonderful solo instrument with a wide-ranging palette of sounds, a rich timbre and virtuosic possibilities to offer.

The members of the Bass_4 quartet are the laureates of international competitions who perform solo and as part of various ensembles.

With their musicianship, these four like-minded souls will touch the tenderest of heartstrings, charm with their subtle wit and take their listeners away in a whirlwind of spring passions.

W. A. Mozart, J. S. Bach, J. Lauber, A. Vivaldi, L. van Beethoven, H. Shinshi, D. Runswick, A. Piazzolla.
