The Quartet of Peace


Two violins, a viola and a cello.

Four instruments crafted to honour South Africa’s four Nobel laureates.

Inspired by the universal concepts of peace, hope, reconciliation and freedom, the quartet of peace was designed to be heard around the world, to raise the profile of South African musicians and to uplift the standards of music education in this country.

Working with maple, spruce, ebony and rosewood, master craftsman Brian Lisus built the instruments in Cape Town in 2010 as a physical manifestation of the lives and work of these four great South Africans who shaped the destiny of our nation.

Chief Albert Luthuli was the first Laureate, and so the 1st violin was named ‘Freedom’ for him.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is known as a man of peace. The 2nd violin is named ‘Peace’ in his honour.

F.W De Klerk turned the page on apartheid, and the viola was called ‘Reconciliation’ in appreciation for all that he did.
Finally, President Nelson Mandela gave the nation hope, the greatest and simplest gift of all.
A cello called ‘Hope’ is named to honour the father of the nation.
