„Four musicians, four artistic destinies, and one goal to be achieved: pure beauty or how to find the warmth in the stuck feelings and attitudes imposed by the time trends.” (Radio France Internationale)
The Maxim Quartet has been founded in 2011 in an atypical format for the classical world whose members Horia Maxim (piano), Mihaela Anica (flute), Fernando Mihalache (accordion) and Săndel Smărăndescu (double bass) are first rate artists of Romanian classical stages. Having deep roots into the classical music, the four musicians are aiming a voyage both to the music depths and out of its borders, by the nonchalant transforming of one of the most popular and benchmarking musical creations. This new sonorous approach is becoming the Maxim Quartet’s mark that represents the pleasure of playing music, the specific sounding and taste for instrumental perfection – a special instrumental mix: piano, flute, contrabass and… accordion, a fascinating musical combination in the European artistic field.

“The charismatic group offers the audiences a voyage in the fascinating art of music, by putting together some of the most beloved and important ballet, symphonic and chamber works.” (Romanian Cultural Radio Channel – February 2012)
