Ensemble formed in Bologna in 1993, on the initiative of Maurizio Minardi.

Their first album 'Le Vacanze Di Hegel' was released in 1997: Tango, habanera, impressionistic and minimal sounds, jazz improvisation, and baroque music.

In 1998, the magazine “Futura Music” produced Breton. The same year, Quartetto Magritte won the Arezzo Wave Festival, and one of the songs, “Cubi,” was edited by Polygram.

In 2002, they participated in the radio show “DemoRai” (promoting independent music). The same year, they produced the CD “L’amantenuta.”

The track "L'amantenuta" in the remix version, chosen by Paul Murphy, was published by Afro Art Records with the title 'Malanotte.'

During 2005, Quartetto Magritte won the Moneta d’Argento (second prize) in the jazz section of the second edition of the Mantua Music Festival.

In 2008, the ensemble released 'Cofferatzinger.'

After 2008, the leader and founder of the group, Maurizio Minardi, moved to London, where he published the album 'The Cook, the Clown, the Monk and the Accordionist,' and carried out numerous tours in England and Europe.

Since 2017, Maurizio Minardi moved to Paris, where, with the violinist Gabriel Bismut, he published a new album 'Le Chat Brel' and performed concerts throughout Europe.
