Technical rigour, penetrative musical insight and lively yet unified individualism…
winning in every sense of the word…
” The Irish Times

The award-winning Carducci Quartet bring their special brand of lyricism to bear on a beautiful programme spanning three centuries, with works by two of the most precocious talents in musical history sandwiching a quartet by one of Ireland’s most important composers.

The Carducci Quartet is recognised as one of today’s most exciting young string quartets.
Based in the UK, the quartet holds residencies at Trinity College of Music in London, Cardiff University and at the Cork School of Music in Ireland. During the 2009-2010 season the quartet performed over 90 concerts worldwide, including performances at London’s Wigmore Hall and Washington’s Library of Congress.
European tours include multiple stops in Spain, Portugal, Denmark, France and throughout the UK, including their own festival in Highnam.
Winners of the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York, the Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition  and major prizes at the Bordeaux, London and Osaka competitions, the Anglo-Irish Carducci quartet has established an enthusiastic international following.
