    The namesake of the Delian Chamber Players is the Greek god Apollo, the god of the fine arts, who is also called Delian after his place of birth, the island of Delos. Ever since the Delian Chamber Players were founded in 2007, the stages of large venues and important festivals have welcomed the ensemble. Its debut at the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2009 triggered genuine waves of enthusiasm. Since then, acclaimed by the public and press alike, the ensemble has performed concerts spanning almost all of Europe and - as a cultural ambassador for the Goethe-Institut - as far away as Africa. In addition to maintaining its existing string quartet range from early baroque to the present day, the Delian Chamber Players are largely committed to expanding its musical repertoire.
