Ruisi Quartet

Celebrated for their deeply engaging performances of early repertoire alongside championing progressive new music, the Ruisi Quartet has established a reputation as a charismatic and expressive young ensemble. Dedicating equal commitment to both the established classical cannon and progressive new works, the group present insightful and unique programme curation alongside the fine, expressive playing the quartet have become synonymous with.

Known for their commitment and conviction performing a broad range of music, the quartet have garnered high-praise for their historically informed performances of Purcell and Haydn, as well as championing new commissions from leading composers. Based in London, the group regularly perform throughout Europe at leading concert halls, recently giving the world premiere of a new work by Thomas Adès at Wigmore Hall (Növények, Nov 2022).

Founded in 2013 by British/Sicilian brothers Alessandro and Max, the quartet were winners of the Kirckman Concert Society Artists award and the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Young String Players, as well as being recipients of a Career Development Award from the Banff International String Quartet Competition 2019.

Their debut album Big House, released in early 2023 on the Pentatone record label, features two early Haydn quartets, viol music by Matthew Locke and two premiere recordings of works by Oliver Leith commissioned by the quartet.
