Following these successes, her solo career took flight.In 1994 Natalia Prishepenko was member of the Artemis Quartet. They soon entered the international arena after winning first prize at the ARD Competition in 1996 and the Premio Borciani a year and a half later. Since its successful debut at the  Berlin Philharmonie in 1999, the quartet has played in all the leading concert halls and international festivals of Europe, the United States, Japan, South America, and Australia. This time is inspired by the teachings of Walter Levin, the Alban Berg, Juilliard, and Emerson Quartets, Alfred Brendel, and David Geringas; also by the results of a direct contact with composers such as Kurtág, Lachenmann, Lutosławski, Nono, and Ligeti; and not least inspired by a musical exchange with artists like Sabine Meyer, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Juliane Banse, Jörg Widmann, Leif Ove Andsnes, Truls Mørk, Thomas Kakuska, Valentin Erben, and the Alban Berg Quartet.

For the Armida Quartet, one of today’s promising young quartets and the winner of the ARD Competition in 2012, is the outcome of the passion she has lavished on this branch of her activity and of her teaching as a Professor at the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
