About the Albion Quartet
A shared belief in the visceral, communicative power of the string quartet has brought together four outstanding performers of their generation to form the Albion Quartet. With a wealth of experience in some of the UKs foremost ensembles between them (including the Badke & Navarra Quartets, and the London Bridge Trio), they have enjoyed numerous competition successes between them, including first prize winners of the Melbourne and Florence International Chamber Music Competitions, awards from the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition, Borletti-Buitoni Trust and ECHO Rising Stars.
The members regularly perform in halls across the globe including Het Concertgebouw, Konzerthaus Berlin, Slovak Philharmonic, Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall. Following years of close collaboration, the members are delighted to further their reputation for creative and imaginative performances in this exciting new venture.
They play a stunning quartet of instruments, including a Stradivarius, Amati, Guarnerius and Grancino.
