Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, London-based Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound worlds of the classical and early romantic string quartet repertoire through period instrument performance.
The quartet’s success at the finals of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition 2015 brought them the EUBO Development Trust Prize and a place on the prestigious Eeemerging project (European Emerging Ensembles) supporting young early music ensembles within the framework of the Creative Europe programme. As a result, the group was invited to perform at the 2015 REMA showcase in Prague, the Concerts in the West 2015 series, NCEM in York, AMUZ in Belgium and Ambronay Festival in France.
Consone Quartet has performed on BBC Radio 3 for the programme “Between the Ears” and has participated in master classes with members of Florilegium (UK) and Ironwood (Australia).
Future engagements include concerts at Buxton Festival, York Early Music Festival, Vienna with Ashley Solomon (flute) and Colin Lawson (clarinet) as well as a joint recital at the Wigmore Hall.
