Sinopia Quartet

Sinopia Quartet

This was a splendid concert with truly masterful performances.

Argyllshire Advertiser February 2019

The splendid Sinopia Quartet played a delicious concert ... From 18th century Haydn, through Schubert's exciting Quartettsatz to Frank Bridge's Three Idylls, and the terrific American Quartet by Dvorak, the vigorous youthful ensemble were unfailingly graceful and warmly engaged with each other.
