The Frith Piano Quartet was formed in 2001, and since its inception has played concerts throughout the United Kingdom. Recent performances have included King’s Place, London, Cardiff and Birmingham as well as several tours of Scotland. The quartet has appeared at many festivals and has a special relationship with the Fishguard International Festival in Wales where they are regular performers. One of the Quartet’s goals has been to perform new and unjustly neglected works. In 2009 they gave the premiere of Michael Finnissy’s Piano Quartet, gave some of the first performances of Mark Anthony Turnage’s Quartet ‘Three for Two’ in 2011 and in 2012 the world premiere of the Piano Quartet by Richard Roderick Jones. Their programmes reflect a huge diversity of music from the quartets of Brahms, Dvorak, Fauré, Mendelssohn and Mozart alongside less known pieces by Bridge, Bliss, Gordon Jacob and William Walton.

The quartet has been chosen for Making Music Concert Promoters’ Network and has appeared several times on BBC Radio 3. Future performances include concerts around the U.K. and at the Wigmore Hall.
