Radu Vâlcu Quartet is a chamber band from Bucharest, led by guitarist Radu Vâlcu.
Their music includes influences from classical music and jazz to minimalist music and traditional music (world music). Since the formation of the band in 2018 until now, they have been invited to hold over 20 concerts in the country, including at the George Enescu Festival, the Harmonia Cordis International Festival or the 3Sound International Festival of Contemporary Music, most appearances being sold out.
