BIOGRAPHY

Described by the magazine Gramophone as ‘one of the finest young string quartets’, whose members are ‘musicians with fascinating things to say’, the Doric String Quartet has received rave responses from audiences and critics across the globe. It was selected for representation by Young Concert Artists Trust in 2006, and in 2008 won First Prize in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, Second Prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy, and the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany. Now in its thirteenth season, it has recently given a critically acclaimed Haydn evening at the Wigmore Hall, broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and later released to critical acclaim on the Wigmore Live label; presented debut recitals in Brussels, Frankfurt, Milan, and Paris; and appeared at the Schwetzinger, Florestan, Isle of Man, and East Neuk festivals. Further afield, the Quartet toured throughout Japan and returned to Israel and South East Asia. Its busy schedule of concerts in the UK includes residencies at Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge and the Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford-on-Avon. It has collaborated with Ian Bostridge, Philip Langridge, Mark Padmore, Chen Halevi, Piers Lane, Melvyn Tan, the Leopold String Trio, and the Florestan Trio. In the near future the Doric String Quartet will give recitals in Berlin, Budapest, Hamburg, New York, and Washington DC, make return visits to Israel and Italy, and undertake tours in Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, and the USA. www.doricstringquartet.com
