Founded in 2007, by four musicians met in the best specialized orchestras: the orchestra of the Champs-Elysées, Les Talens Lyriques or the Cercle de L'Harmonie, the group was very quickly appreciated both for its interpretation of the recognized works of Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven or Félix Mendelssohn only for his rediscovery of unjustly forgotten French composers such as Félicien David or Louis Théodore Gouvy.

The choice of Guiseppe Maria Cambini (1746-1825), prolific violinist and composer with romantic life, testifies to the quartet's desire to explore the stylistic evolutions of the classical and romantic eras.

The Cambini-Paris quartet has already performed in the most renowned venues and festivals in Europe: the baroque music center of Versailles, the Aix-en-Provence festival, the Palazetto Bru Zane in Venis, the Concergebow of Bruges, the marble palace of Saint-Petersburg, the Oratory of San Filippo Neri in Bologna, the Opéra Comique, the auditorium of the Louvre, the house of Radio France in Paris, the French institutes of Vienna and Budapest, the Deauville Easter festival, the Sablé-sur-Sarthe festival, the Lubéron festival and the Epau festival.

They collaborate with artists such as Alain Planès, Alain Meunier, Christophe Coin or Jérôme Pernoo.

Their first disc devoted to Devienne, Vachon, Cambini and Boccherini was released in 2007 by MBF. The Arte channel then chose them to illustrate an evening dedicated to the twentieth anniversary of the Baroque music center of Versailles as well as a documentary devoted to André Grétry. In 2010, their disc dedicated to Hyacinthe Jadin for Timpani received a Diapason d'or discovery. In 2012, their recording devoted to three previously unreleased quartets by Félicien David was hailed by critics. In 2014, the quartet recorded a disc dedicated to the Parisian quartets of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The Cambini-Paris quartet is in residence at the Singer-Polignac foundation and receives support from the Swiss Life foundation.
