About StringTing

Contemporary classical ensemble
London
"...rock standards in a way you’ve never quite heard before, with an appealing sense of menace" - Jazzwise News 2018

"...a mixture of Viennese harmony and gypsy gutsiness in their ferocious discordant playing......one of the most exciting ensembles to have emerged recently from the stable of Tomorrow’s Warriors" - LondonJazzNews, 2018 Established in 2016 by Gary Crosby OBE, they are a very unique string quartet with their sound being a mixture of jazz and contemporary influences, and focused around improvisation. They perform a mixture of repertoire, from quirky self-written arrangements of jazz standards, to pieces which have been composed specifically for the group. In the last 2 years they have played at festivals including the EFG London Jazz Festival, the Woman of the World Festival & Cheltenham Jazz Festival, and venues including Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The Royal Festival Hall, Pizza Express Jazz Club, & The Southbank Centre. They were requested by Wigmore Hall to perform a concert during their Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition 2018, and as a group have received top quality masterclasses from cuban jazz violinist Yillian Canizares, Parliamentary Jazz Award winner Peter Edwards, & MOBO Award winner Binker Golding. In 2019 they are scheduled to go on tour with saxophonist Steve Williamson as well as two other exciting projects yet to be announced.
