BIOGRAPHY

The Purcell Quartet celebrated twenty years of music making with friends and collaborators at the Wigmore Hall in 2004. The group has appeared all over the world, including North and South America and all the countries of Europe, and for over ten years has been a regular visitor to Japan, touring extensively with fully staged performances of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea and Orfeo. The Quartet has played at most of the major festivals in the United Kingdom, recorded extensively for the BBC, and toured with the Early Music Network. Recently, the members have concentrated on the works of J.S. Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude. They have presented several sell-out Wigmore Hall recitals of the early cantatas of Bach and then recorded these works for Chandos. They are also popularising the cantatas of Buxtehude with concerts and recordings involving their fabulous quartet of soloists – Emma Kirkby, Michael Chance, Charles Daniels and Peter Harvey. The Purcell Quartet has recorded a huge range of music exclusively for Chandos, including works by Purcell, Corelli, Lawes, Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Weckmann, Buxtehude, Leclair, Schütz, Couperin and Biber, to outstanding critical and public acclaim.
