Piatti Quartet

Described as ‘a signally impressive young ensemble’ (The Sunday Times), the Piatti Quartet has also been praised for displaying ‘perfect ensemble’ and ‘acute sensitivity’ (Gramophone). The quartet rose to prominence after multiple prize-winning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, and is renowned for diverse programming and passionate interpretations across the spectrum of quartet-writing.

From the recording studio, the group’s critically acclaimed releases on many labels range from Mozart, Mendelssohn and Britten to contemporary composers such as Mark-Anthony Turnage and Gavin Higgins. They have commissioned and premiered many of the UK’s leading composers ever since their first commission of Joseph Phibbs’s String Quartet No 1.

They have performed all around Europe, including at the Klarafestival (Brussels), Musée de l’Orangerie (Paris), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Wigmore Hall (London), National Concert Hall (Dublin), Gaudi’s ‘La Pedrera’ (Barcelona) and the Albert Long Hall (Istanbul), with many accompanied by radio broadcasts.

Sharing a stage with guests brings much joy to the quartet, and recent partnerships include those with Ian Bostridge, Nicky Spence, Michael Collins, the Belcea Quartet, Janina Fialkowska, Melvyn Tan, Julius Drake, Katherine Broderick and Adam Walker.

The Piatti Quartet takes its name from the great nineteenth-century cellist Alfredo Piatti, who was a leading professor and exponent of chamber music at the Royal Academy of Music.
