Verified profile

The Stretto Quartet is a sought-after ensemble for social events, corporate functions and weddings, in London and further afield. "Wow. We could not have asked for a better string group! You played beautifully!" - Kirsty, delighted bride They are happy to travel to your event, and will bring with them their professional approach, reliability, flexibility and sense of fun. If you are looking to find a string quartet consisting of four individually talented players who combine to perform with a considerable flair and zest, this is the string quartet for you. The musicians in these ensembles are selected from amongst the finest young musicians in London. In addition to their work with the Stretto Ensembles, they have individually appeared in the West End, playing for the Phantom of the Opera, Matilda and Kinky Boots, on screen in the film of Les Miserables, and with the Welsh National Opera, English National Ballet, the National Symphony Orchestra, and many others. They enjoy playing all styles of music, from Mozart to Michael Jackson, and convey their enjoyment to you and your guests. Among the most recent additions to their regular repertoire are the theme from Skyfall and songs by Coldplay and Maroon 5, which with other contemporary music adds a vibrant atmosphere to their performance. STRETTO DUO Violin and Cello, a perfect partnership The Stretto Duo has been working hard this Summer, putting together a repertoire of music for all manner of events, and we are happy to say that we're now ready to work! THE STRING TRIO If your budget doesn't quite stretch to a String Quartet, or if you simply don't have space in your venue for four players, a String Trio could be perfect for you. Made up of a Violin, Viola and Cello, a String Trio allows you to have the harmonies of a larger ensemble with the cost and intimacy of a smaller group.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

We always tailor our music to the exact requirements of our client, and can play in any style, from Vivaldi and Bach to Beyonce or Queen, we can give you exactly what you're looking for.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

All over the place! Our most high-profile recent performances have probably been at Althorp House for Earl Spencer and for a 500 person wedding at Wentworth Golf Club.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

All sorts. We play everything, so no really obvious influences.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

As I said before, background music for Earl Spencer at Althorp House and a huge wedding at Wentworth.

Do you have different line-up options?

We do, we can offer a String Quartet, a String Trio, Violin and Cello Duos or Two Cellos

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always do our best to be flexible with our timings. If you need to change them, we'll do our best to work with you.

How much time do you need to set up?

Around 5 minutes. We don't have any electronic equipment, so as long as we have chairs in place, we can set up our stands and music relatively quickly.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Absolutely, we want you to hear the music you want us to play, so feel free to choose as many of the pieces from our list. Just be sure to choose from the correct list. We have different set-lists for each group size.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Other than chairs, we have everything we need

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely. We don't charge to learn the music, but we ask that you cover the cost of the sheet music, usually between £10 and £30.

David C, 3 months ago

The Stretto Ensembles were a wonderful addition to our wedding day. Super professional, and a pleasure to work with. They provided a great set list that we were able to pick from - just the right size: big enough to feel comprehensive, but without being too expansive that a classical novice like me would get lost with what to pick. For anything not on the list, they were able to acquire sheets for some music that we wanted. They were even able to put together a particular arrangement of a favourite piece of mine from a youtube video. Super happy - I'd love to book them again for the anniversary in a few years' time!
