Following successful performances in Chennai and Puducherry in 2006, the internationally renowned Signum Quartett now embarks on an extensive tour of South Asia at the invitation of the Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan. The programme for the concert in Delhi will include pieces by Schumann and Haydn and will feature the first violin quartet by the young German composer Jörg Widman.
The Signum Quartett received its first lessons from Konrad Grahe. Shortly after its founding, the quartet was awarded 1st prize in Germany's 1994 nationwide youth competition Jugend musiziert and a prize at the Charles Hennen Concours in 1997. They continued their studies with the Melos and Alban Berg quartets. Masterclasses with György Kurtàg, Tabea Zimmermann, the Artemis quartet as well as with members of the Amadeus, Smetana, Cherubini, and the LaSalle Quartets were further inspirations.
In the framework of the summer academy Prague-Vienna-Budapest in 1999, the Signum Quartett received the Thomastik Infeld prize which enabled the four musicians to record a live CD in Vienna. The ensemble was awarded scholarships from the chamber music foundation Villa Musica and the Werner Richard- Dr. Carl Dörken foundation, the "Freunde junger Musiker Düsseldorf/Meerbusch" and the Bruno-Frey-Stiftung. In 2004, the Signum Quartett won the nationwide German Musikwettbewerb and the special award of Zonta International. At the previous Musikwettbewerb competition in 2000, they received a scholarship and the special prize of the Rheingau music festival.
The Signum Quartett performed extensively in Barcelona and Madrid, at the Schubertiada a Vilbertran in Spain, at the Ludwigsburger Festspiele festival, the Oberstdorfer Musiksommer, the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Salon of the Arts in Sofia, and at the Rheingau music festival. Their concerts were broadcast nationally and internationally, by the WDR, NDR, SWR, BR, Deutschlandfunk, DRS, and ORF radios. Following an initiative by the Villa Musica foundation, the four musicians were invited to record a CD with the SWR radio. The programme juxtaposes works by Schumann and Haydn with the world premiere recording of Jörg Widmann's first string quartet.
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809): String Quartet in D major, op.76, No.5 (1797)
Jörg Widmann (born in 1973): String Quartet No.1 (1997)

The Hyderabad Golf Club site comprises of the former Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad an adjoining water body,covering about 50 acres which is now the receipient of all the sewage from the surrounding areas and 110 acres within the 'Naya Quila' a component of the historic Golconda Fort complex. Situated in the 'Naya Quila' are two disused mosques which are being restored by the archaeological Survey of India.
Apart from the four hundred year old 'Boabab Tree' or 'Hathiyon ka Jhad', there is also a huge tower on which rests a 15 foot long cannon which is a part of the defences of the 'Naya Quila' that was constructed to keep the high ground to the north of the Golconda Fort out of reach of enemies who might use the vantage point to bombard the Fort.
The Course itself has been designed by Mr. David Hemstock who has designed courses all over the world. In India he has designed the Amby Valley Golf Course, a part of the ambitious Lake City project of the Sahara Group.The course will be situated in one of the most unique sites in the world as it almost totally located within the ramparts of Naya Quila, part of the historic Golconda Fort complex. Our Course will be a 7000 yard, par 72, 18 hole course built to international standards and keeping in mind the location, the history and the ambience of the area. The first half will be a par 37 and the second half a par 35.
Lending itself beautifully to the surroundings, the Course boasts of a natural lake and stretches into the Naya Quila.
Creatively designed to accentuate the historical setting whilst preserving the ecological balance, the spectacular 18 hole Golf Course will be an experience.
