Abroad, the quartet played concerts in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Slovenia, Italy, Georgia and China. A first concert series in the US followed in 2018. Another tour in China is planned in summer 2019.

In 2017, the quartet won the Paola Ruminelli international chamber music competition in Ossola, Italy.
