Winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Young British String Players and YCAT Finalists in 2015, the Ruisi Quartet has quickly established a reputation as one of the leading British quartets of its generation, delivering performances that are “strikingly immediate, committed and direct” (Chichester Observer, 2014).
Founded in 2012 by brothers Alessandro and Max, the quartet perform regularly throughout the UK and Europe, and for 2014/15 were in residence at the Royal College of Music in London. The quartet’s shared affinity for the string quartets of Haydn has led to them to embark upon a Haydn Quartet cycle in central London, beginning in March 2016.
