An innovative, promising young string quartet based in Manchester.
Formed in 2015 at the Royal Northern College of Music, The Marvolo Quartet are a fresh, dynamic string quartet that are firmly establishing themselves in Manchester. Passionate about a diverse variety of music, their highlights from 2016 include performing at the sold-out 'Neon Sonnets' series at the John Ryland's Library as part of 'Manchester After Hours', and premiering two new compositions in the "Decontamination 7: Boulez/Bowie" concert at the RNCM last year. They were also chosen to perform for RNCM's 'In Focus' series, working with acclaimed composer Colin Matthews and performing his String Quartet No.5 in the RNCM Concert Hall. This year, the Marvolo Quartet took part in the prestigious RNCM Chamber Music Festival 'Budafest', where they performed Kodaly's rarely-heard String Quartet No.2. They were also chosen to play a selection of Ravel works and new compositions in October, featuring as the string players in RNCM's Sinfonietta ensemble, where they performed in an RNCM lunchtime concert and a masterclass taken by Sir Mark Elder. The quartet have played for many of the RNCM's visiting tutors, receiving coaching from members of the Chilingirian Quartet, Elias Quartet and Talich Quartet, and performing as an octet with the Elias Quartet in a short recital at the RNCM in 2016.
Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it.
