Prizewinners at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Piatti Quartet is amongst the UK’s foremost young ensembles with a host of awards and critically-acclaimed recordings to its name. The Quartet has appeared in concerts throughout the world, with national broadcasts on ABC (Australia), RTE (Ireland) radio and France Musique (France). The group takes its name from the great nineteenth-century cellist Alfredo Piatti, who was a leading professor and exponent of quartet playing at the Royal Academy of Music.

At the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Piatti Quartet won joint 2nd Prize, as well as the Sidney Griller Award for the best performance of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s ‘Contusion’, and the St Lawrence String Quartet Prize. The Quartet is delighted to have been reappointed as the 2015-2016 Richard Carne Junior Fellows in String Quartet at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. The Quartet works regularly with the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust, enjoying the opportunity to help secure the future of chamber music by bringing the wonders of the string quartet to young children and their families in schools and halls around the country.

“A signally impressive young ensemble.”
The Sunday Times, May 2015
