The Bennewitz Quartet was founded in 1998. Having participated in various master classes, its members have had the opportunity to gain experience and inspiration from many eminent musicians, most notably Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet) and Walter Levin (La Salle Quartet). In 2003, the Queen of Spain presented them with a diploma for outstanding work at the Reina Sofía School of Music (Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía) in Madrid. A year later, the quartet was awarded the Czech Chamber Music Society Prize. In 2002–2004, the ensemble held the position of Quartet in Residence in Basel, Switzerland, where it led a course in quartet playing.
 
The quartet currently performs at major venues in the Czech Republic and abroad (including the Wigmore Hall London, Musikverein Wien, Konzerthaus Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées Paris, The Frick Collection New York, Seoul Art Center, Rudolfinum), and is regularly invited to prestigious festivals, such as the Salzburger Festspiele, Luzerne Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, Kammermusikfest Lockenhaus, the Prague Spring, and Dvořákova Praha (Dvořák's Prague).
