ABOUT THE EVENT

The  first period instrument quartet to be selected as BBC New Generation  Artists, the Consone Quartet are fast making a name for themselves with  their honest and expressive interpretations of classical and early  romantic repertoire. Their debut CD, released in 2018 on the French  Ambronay Label, explores music by Haydn and Mendelssohn. It was met with  great critical acclaim as a recording “that instantly leaps out of the  stereo at you as something special” (The Strad, 2019).

Formed  at the Royal College of Music in London, the Consone Quartet are  winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Prize in London,  having previously been awarded two prizes at the 2015 York Early Music  International Young Artists Competition, including the EUBO Development  Trust Prize and a place on the EEEmerging Scheme in France.

The  quartet has been enthusiastically received at London’s Wigmore Hall,  King’s Place, St Martin-in-the-Fields and at the Edinburgh, Cheltenham,  and Buxton Festivals amongst others. The Brighton, English Haydn and  York Early Music Festivals have been loyal supporters over the past few  years and regularly host the group. 2022/3  highlights include Queen's Hall, Edinburgh; Wigmore Hall, London;  Stoller Hall, Manchester; De Bijloke, Belgium; Heidelberg Festival,  Germany and tours of North America and Japan. The quartet is also  continuing their own chamber music series, ‘Barnstorming!’, performing  in different barns around the UK. The project is kindly supported by the  Continuo Foundation.

The quartet was recently awarded a Fellowship from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust.
