About Consone Quartet

Formed at the Royal College of Music in London, the Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring Classical and Early Romantic repertoire on period instruments. Winner of the 2016 Royal Overseas League Ensemble Prize, the Consone Quartet was also awarded two prizes at the 2015 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, including a place on the ‘EEEmerging’ Emerging European Ensembles Scheme associated with the Ambronay Festival in France and six other early music festivals across Europe.

Recent highlights include an acclaimed debut at London’s Wigmore Hall, performances at Cadogan Hall, St James’s Piccadilly, the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace, and at the Cheltenham, Brighton Early Music, Lake District Summer Music, Buxton and King’s Lynn Festivals, as well as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Consone Quartet is rapidly gaining international recognition performing in France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, and last year they completed their debut tour to South America performing across Bolivia and Peru.

The Consone Quartet’s debut CD, featuring music by Haydn and Mendelssohn, was released on the Ambronay Label during the Festival in October 2018 and was followed by a London launch kindly hosted by the Royal Over-Seas League in December. The disc was met with great critical acclaim and was labelled by the Strad as a debut disc, “that instantly leaps out of the stereo at you as something special”.
