Named after the celebrated 17th-century Italian violin-maker Gioffredo Cappa, this exciting young chamber ensemble has quickly established itself as a quartet of outstanding artistry, touring extensively in Australasia and Japan as well as throughout the UK. Winner of Music Network’s Young Musicwide competition in 2009, the quartet boasts a line-up of top performers in their own right.

“Noct is a night piece, inspired by the constellated sky and the idea of gathering darkness. Noct relates most closely to the slower movements of the Mozart and Bax works, but more like an after-image rather than a reflection.” Ian Wilson

“In Schumann’s Piano Quartet, it was as if the lights had come on. Everything worked. There was subtlety and power in the playing, and an easy give-and-take not apparent elsewhere. This was the kind of spot-on performance that must have brought them their Young Musicwide success in the first place.” Michael Dervan Irish Times.
