Programme Note

Founded exactly 25 years ago, the ensemble won the London International String Quartet Competition (predecessor of the Wigmore event) in 2000 and has subsequently enjoyed a career in the highest echelons of the chamber-music world. A wide range of recordings – including, recently, the entire Beethoven sequence – has been consistently well received. 'No other quartet can match this group's four-voiced marriage,' wrote The Independent, 'with its particular blend of fine-honed precision and passionate expressiveness.'
