Le quatuor MP4 a été créé en 2008 par de jeunes diplômés des Conservatoires Royaux de Belgique, après un perfectionnement auprès notamment des Quatuor Danel, Pavel Haas et Kronos. Le quatuor participe à des spectacles mêlant la création et le croisement des arts de la scène (Danse X Music I et II, en collaboration avec l’Opéra royal de la Monnaie, Handelbeurs, concert autour de Chostakovitch commenté par la comédienne Elise Steenackers). En 2014, le quatuor crée le spectacle « Steve Reich project » en collaboration avec la chorégraphe Isabella Soupart, les Jeunesses Musicales et le festival Ars Musica. Récemment, le quatuor s’est produit dans une programmation associant notamment Beethoven, Fafchamps, Ligeti, Sciarrino, Lutoslawki et Steve Reich autour du thème des métamorphoses.
