Award-winning Consone Quartet to perform in Richmond


The award-winning Consone Quartet will make their first visit to Richmond later this month.

The quartet was formed in 2012 whilst the members were studying at the Royal Academy of Music, and is the first period instrument quartet to have been chosen as BBC New Generation Artists.

They will be playing Haydn, Beethoven and Czerny at their concert on February 23 as part of the Richmondshire Concerts series/

Acclaimed conductor Sir Roger Norrington said of the group: “The Consone Quartet are a young string quartet with a really big future.

“They play with perfect intonation, tremendous attack, and impeccable historical style.

“All the four instruments work together with such intelligence and imagination, that I would happily listen to them every day.”

The concert is at the Influence Church in Richmond at 7.30pm on Wednesday, February 23.
