Fortissimo / Electric String Quartet

Fortissimo, the first Greek electric string quartet , has participated in important music events in many places of the world , including Spain, Great Britain, France , Italy, Morocco, Malta, Brazil, India and many more.

Fortissimo is a talented Greek all-female electric string band that performs classical tunes along with more popular styles of Pop, Rock, Latin and Greek music.

The four beautiful and talented musicians have been friends for many years and after completing their studies in prestigious music colleges of Britain and Germany, they formed their unique crossover quartet, which have gained worldwide popularity!

Originating from Thessaloniki, Greece, the girls have gained much popularity in Greece and their amazing ability to fuse classical music with electric sounds as well as their charismatic stage presence has gotten Fortissimo a dedicated fan base of individuals from different age groups, music backgrounds and nationalities!

They were also specially chosen to collaborate with ‘Scorpions’ in their epic concert in Athens in 2010 and supported the group ‘Deep Purple’ in 2011.

Along with their live performances, C Music TV chose Fortissimo’s video clips from “Electric Storm” for two of its promo videos. Although the members of Fortissimo are extremely popular in their home country, they have been invited to perform in other great events across the globe in places like London, Paris, Brussels, Stockholm, Rome, Sardinia, Malta, Istanbul, Ibiza, Canary Islands, Marrakech, Sao Paulo, New Delhi and many more!
