The London Haydn Quartet was born out of a passion for Haydn’s string quartets. Playing on gut strings with classical bows, they have received invitations to many of the most important concert series in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland and North America. In addition to this, they have started several of their own concert series in which they have performed the complete cycle of Haydn quartets. They have given recitals at New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Cheltenham International Festival, the Granada International Festival and at Haydn festivals in Esterházy, Lincoln and Lyon, and the English Haydn Festival. Further performances include a series of four concerts at the Wigmore Hall, two appearances at the Klara Festival in Brussels and a series of performances in the USA and Canada.
In addition to their highly acclaimed interpretations of Haydn they have formed a collaboration with period clarinettist Eric Hoeprich with whom they also recorded the Brahms and Mozart quintets on the Glossa label. Their recent concerts have included a re-invitation to the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, a tour of the USA and Canada including a recital at the Library of Congress, and appearances in Serbia, Switzerland, France, Germany and the Czech Republic.
