Stephen Dodgson String Trio No.1
Beethoven String Trio in E flat Op.3
Harriet MacKenzie (violin)
Sarah-Jane Bradley (viola)

Bringing together internationally acclaimed performers, Karolos is committed to seeking out new repertoire, as well as performing works from the canon. The group has embarked upon a series of performances and recordings of the superb chamber music of Stephen Dodgson.
“Expressive … brilliant … virtuosic” (The Observer)
“Karolos are a dynamic, virtuoso chamber collective of first-rate players.” (Gramophone Magazine).
“Given the top-notch gallery of players, it is only necessary to relate the excellence of the performances, individually impressive and with meaningful interaction“ (Colin Anderson, Classical Source)
“an absolute joy, the performances little short of ideal, perfect in intonation and ensemble, lively and delicate as required” (Guy Rickards, Gramophone Magazine)
