Prizewinners at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Piatti Quartet is amongst the UK’s foremost young ensembles with a host of awards and critically-acclaimed recordings to its name. They have performed in all the major venues around the UK, including a live BBC Radio 3 broadcast from the Wigmore Hall. The Quartet has also appeared in concerts throughout the world, with national broadcasts on ABC (Australia), RTE radio and France Musique.

“A signally impressive young ensemble…..the Piattis began with a sumptuous account of Webern’s early, freestanding Langsamer Satz….the Phibbs…proved formally exhilarating yet plangent…in its combination of vibrancy and formal rigour.” – The Sunday Times

The recital will be followed by a Meet the Artist reception. All welcome.
