Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, the 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 eeemerging project (European Emerging Ensembles). The group was invited to perform at the 2015 REMA showcase in Prague and at the 2015 Concerts in the West series and are participants in the 2016 Brighton Early Music Live! Scheme.
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). In April 2014, Consone Quartet travelled to Bolivia to perform with the Arakaendar Choir, directed by Ashley Solomon. The quartet is delighted to have been invited to perform at the Wigmore Hall, Buckingham Palace, Cadogan Hall, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at AMUZ in Antwerp among other venues.
The ensemble will still be supported by the EEEMERGING+ programme in 2020.
