Following their selection by the European Concert Halls Organisation (ECHO) as the UK Concert Halls’ nominated ‘Rising Stars’ 2009, the Barbirolli Quartet has toured the major concert halls of Europe, and holds an international reputation for its diverse, prolific repertoire and dynamic approach to performance.

The Times has described them as “forthright, fullblooded musicians, afraid of nothing” and The Strad hailed their “superbly realised performance” and “precision of ensemble at formidable rates of energy”. The quartet performs at major venues throughout the UK, such as the Wigmore Hall, the Purcell room, Kings Place, St David’s Hall Cardiff and Bridgewater Hall.

Formed in 2003 at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, the quartet has also undertaken a chamber Music fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a Leverhulme Chamber Music fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music.

For this recording they were kindly loaned a set of fine Italian instruments from the Royal Academy, comprising of two Guadagnini violins, a Ceruti Viola and the 1692 ‘Segelman’ Stradivarius cello.

Barbirolli Quartet:
- Rakhi Singh (violin)
- Katie Stillman (violin)
- Ella Brinch (viola)
- Ashok Klouda (cello)
