The Max and Evelyn Forbes Concert

The award-winning Jubilee Quartet were formed in 2006 at the Royal Academy of Music and are named after the tube line they all lived near as students. In Cambridge they will perform Mozart’s ‘E flat major Quartet, K 428’. When Haydn heard it performed he said “I tell you before God, as an honest man, that your son is the greatest composer whom I know personally or by name; he has taste, and over and above that, the greatest knowledge of the Science of composition.”


Mozart: String Quartet, K428

Schubert: String Quartet No.10

Bartók: String Quartet No.4

The Jubilee Quartet was formed in 2006 at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Prizes include first prize at the Val Tidone International Chamber Music Competition 2010 and the St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition 2013, Second prize at the Karol Szymanowski International String Quartet Competition 2014, and third prize at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition 2013. The quartet held a Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship at the Academy during 2012-13, and the Richard Carne Junior Fellowship at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance during 2013-14.

The quartet are award winners of the Tillett Trust ‘Young Artists’ Platform’; the Park Lane Group ‘Young Artists’; the Hattori Foundation; the Worshipful Company of Musicians ‘Concordia Foundation Artists Fund’; and are recipients of the Philharmonia MMSF ‘Charles Henderson Ensemble Award’ and the Eaton Square ‘St. Peter’s Prize’ 2014. In 2012 the quartet were finalists in the Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition, Weimar, and in 2013 and 2015, in the Royal Over-Seas League.

The Jubilee Quartet would like to thank the Mears/Speers family for their generous support and the Stradivari Trust for their assistance in acquiring two fine violins and a viola for the quartet’s use through a syndicate trust. For more information please visit
