About the Carreňo Quartett
The Carreňo Quartet was founded in 2009. It is named for the Venezuelan composer and pianist Teresa Carreňo (1853 - 1971), whose only string quartet was the decisive factor for the name choice.
In its founding year, the quartet took on the honourable task of opening the first concert in the MariaAnna Mozart Society Salzburg’s newly-created concert series "Frauenstimmen" (“The voices of Women”).
Since then, the quartet has performed regularly in this series. The quartet is primarily dedicated to researching new string quartet literature with a focus on works by female composers.

Hallstatt - Small village with a great history
The picturesque village on the lake with the same name owes its existence to the rich salt deposit of salt in the mountain of Hallstatt. 7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC). Rich findings in Hallstatt and the upper valley of Hallstatt gave this village international recognition; even today discoveries are still made in the salt mountain of Hallstatt. Among the most beautiful places of interest are the oldest salt mine in the world and the ossuary in Hallstatt, a romantic boat ride on Lake Hallstatt, a trip to the breathtaking cave world in Obertraun and a visit to the Lake Gosau with the mighty Dachstein glacier. Additionally, Bad Goisern is popular in the summer with hikers and bikers. In winter guests are lured in by the ski areas of Dachstein West in Gosau and the Ski and Freeride Arena in neighboring Obertraun with perfect slope conditions. We wish you an unforgettable holiday in Hallstatt!
