Piatti String Quartet 2017

This much admired and popular prize-winning quartet makes a welcome return to Weston. The Piatti Quartet are one of the most distinguished quartets of their generation. Prizewinners at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, they have performed in all the major venues and festivals around the country as well as concerts throughout the world.

The Quartet's recordings have been released on the Linn Records and Champs Hill labels, including the Piatti's lauded contribution to the complete string quartet works of Felix Mendelssohn, which was BBC Music Magazine's Critic's Choice (September 2014). Most recently, the Quartet was featured on a jazz concept album in collaboration with saxophonist Justin Swadling, released in May 2016 by 33 Records - it received a 4.5* review from Downbeat Magazine.

Their programme:

Haydn - String Quartet in C Op 33 No 3 'The Bird'

Beethoven - String Quartet No 11 in F minor Op 95, Serioso

Ravel - String Quartet in F major
