The Badke Quartet, formed in 2002, is widely recognised as one of Britain’s finest string quartets. The Quartet has received widespread acclaim for its energetic and vibrant performances.
The Quartet has worked with some of the world’s greatest string quartets and studied with Gabor Takács-Nagy at IMS Prussia Cove and members of the Alban Berg Quartet in Cologne. From 2005 to 2009 the Quartet held the Senior Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music.
The Badke Quartet regularly perform at concert halls and festivals in the UK and abroad, including Aldeburgh, Montreux, Bad Kissingen, Malmö, Mecklenburg, Ljubljana, Santander, Aix-en-Provence, Verbier Presteigne, West Cork, London’s Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, and the Musikverein in Vienna.
Future plans include a return to the Concertgebouw, a tour of the USA and a performance at the Haydn String Quartet Festival at the Court Theatre in Esterhazy Palace.
“An unswerving togetherness…thrilling…agile, articulate playing.”
