Hay Music: The Consone String Quartet
Friday 19th January 2018, 7.30pm
Hay Music: The Consone String Quartet

Hay Music presents The Consone String Quartet, performing works by Haydn, Beethoven, Boccherini and Mendelssohn.

Haydn - Quartet Op. 1, No. 1
Beethoven - Quartet Op. 18, No. 3
Boccherini - Quartet Op. 26
Mendelssohn - Four Pieces for String Quartet, Op. 81.

Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, the London based Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the Classical and early Romantic string quartet repertoire through period instrument performance.

The quartet's success at the finals of the 2015 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition brought them the EUBO Development Trust prize and a place on the prestigious European Emerging Ensembles scheme, which supports young early music ensembles. The group has performed in Prague, at the York Early Music Festival, Concerts in the West, AMUZ in Belgium, the Ambronay Festival in France and Ghislieri Musica in Pavia, Italy.

Consone has collaborated with members of the Hanover Band, the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, clarinettists Jane Booth and Vlad Weverbergh, soprano Gillian Keith, Ahsley Solomon and Colin Lawson for several performances in Vienna.  Other performances include the Wigmore Hall, Buxton Festival, Lake District Summer Music, Cadogan Hall, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace and Bulgaria Chamber Hall in Sofia.

Last year the group was selected for the Brighton Early Music Live! Scheme and presented a lunchtime programme themed around the origins of the string quartet.
