The Saul Quartet are all current students at The Royal College of Music and The Royal Academy of Music. Based in London.

The Saul Quartet are all students currently studying at two of London's finest conservatoires: The Royal College of Music and The Royal Academy of Music. They have been together for 5 years. The Quartet was formed at Chetham's School of Music where they had regular coaching with Graham Oppenheimer and Pavel Fisher. The quartet have performed in numerous concerts in Chethams' 'Carole Nash Hall' and Baronial Hall and have regularly been invited to give performances around the UK. The Saul Quartet have attended the Wigmore Hall National Young String Quartet Weekend three years running, giving them the opportunity to work with members of the Carducci Quartet, Christoph Richter, Mark Messenger, Jan Talich, Rafael Todes, Jana Harabanova and Miguel da Silva. They have also had lessons with cellists Bruno Schrecker, Kari Ravnan, Nicholas Jones and Francis Guton, Italian composer Simone Fontanelli and violinists Winfried Rademacher and Owen Cox. In 2014, the quartet was invited to play for Richard Ireland’s Masterclass program at Kings Place in London, being the first school aged group to be accepted for the scheme. In 2016 they travelled to the Barratt Due Institute in Oslo. As well as performing as a quartet they collaborated with the students from the Institute to create a sextet performing Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence. In March 2016 the Saul quartet won the Fiona Ord String Chamber Music Competition and were awarded the Mozart Scholarship for quartet playing. The quartet have collaborated with the prestigious London Russian Ballet School (September 2017) performing at the London Palladium as well as Cadogan Hall. They have worked on repertoire by Mendelssohn, Haydn, Beethoven, Shostakovich, Ravel and Janacek.
