Formed in 2011, this outstanding young quartet with its “richly romantic energy and passion” (Strad Magazine) is fast becoming a favourite of audiences, in the United Kingdom and abroad. Almost immediately, they were offered an award by the Elias Fawsett Trust and also the Countess of Munster Trust, among others.
In 2011, they achieved a Masters Degree in Chamber Music at the Hannover University of Music, Dance and Theatre, they then won first prize at the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition, in 2015 and in 2016, they won third prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition.
