About Consone Quartet

String Quartet
London
A string quartet dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the classical and early romantic repertoire.

The Consone Quartet is a string quartet dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the classical and early romantic repertoire through period instrument performance. As well as performing on period instruments, each member of the quartet is also a modern string player. The quartet's recent success at the finals of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition brought them the EUBO Development Trust prize and a place on the prestigious European Emerging Ensembles programme, led by the Centre culturel de recontre d'Ambronay. The quartet performed for the BBC programme "Between the Ears" which was broadcast on Radio 3 and have participated in master classes with Lucy Russell, Catherine Martin, Jean Patterson, members of Florilegium (UK) and Ironwood (Australia). In 2013 the Consone Quartet was awarded the Century Fund Prize in the RCM Historical Performance Competition and have recorded works by Giovanni Antonio Giaj and Daniele Castrovillari with the Ballo Baroque Ensemble. In April 2014 the Consone Quartet travelled to Bolivia to perform with the Arakaendar Choir, directed by Ashley Solomon.
