Amati Quartet

Amati Quartet

The Amati Quartet are a string quartet associated with the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. The ensemble performs with four instruments made by the Amati family of luthiers.

In 1959 Saskatchewan farmer Steve Kolbinson sold a set of rare 17th century Amati instruments to the University of Saskatchewan for a nominal fee, with the understanding that they would be used for the benefit of the people of the province. The four instruments, built by members of the Amati family are the only Amati quartet in Canada and one of the few in the world.
