Resol String Quartet

Resol String Quartet

"The Resol quartet... is making an impact for the dedication and passion in its playing. What they are doing is marvellous, for chamber music and for us, while lockdown continues to quash live performance."

David White, ArtMagUk, 2021

"Arresting and engaging from the outset... a beautifully-shaped, playful interpretation with an unforced, instinctively musical sense of direction as well as real clarity... a fully-achieved and intensely musical interpretation; one to revisit with real pleasure."

Richard Bratby, adjudicator, CAVATINA Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition, 2021

Biography

Friends joined through their love of chamber music, the Resol String Quartet formed in the Autumn of 2018 at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, with a vision to make classical music more inclusive and accessible both in the present and for the future.

In May 2021, the quartet were awarded both the First Prize, and Audience Prize in the CAVATINA Competition at the Wigmore Hall, representing the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. In the same year, they made their Perth Concert Hall debut, were named as one of Chamber Music Scotland’s ‘One’s to Watch’ and were accepted to work with Live Music Now Scotland. They also appeared live on BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Classics Unwrapped’. In 2022 they made their Conway Hall Debut as part of their historic ‘Sunday Concert Series’. Recently the quartet were selected as a Britten Pears Young Artist for the year 2022-23.

Their upcoming season includes a tour across Scotland featuring a new take on Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik in collaboration with Chamber Music Scotland and musicologist Bruce Fox- Lefriche and an exciting project at the end of the year with Sussex based composer Julian Broughton. The new year will see them tour around the UK with a program of music composed by female composers from across the world in the early 1900’s, before returning to Catalonia following several re-invitations from this July.
