“The unflinching integrity of their interpretation and the excitement of their playing were consistently superb.”

Greetings from the Dante Quartet! Looking back over 2018, we’ve had a wonderful year of great projects: several performances of “Beethoven’s Quartet Journey” (see above), a marathon weekend of all 15 Shostakovich quartets and finally a 2-week tour of concerts and teaching in Japan. In 2019 we look forward to playing at Kings Place (24th March), releasing our latest recordings of unknown gems by Stanford and Howells, and making our first tour of China. We are planning our next Dante Festival in Cornwall (8-12 July) and will soon update the website with programme details, which you’ll be able to check on www.dantefestival.org. We warmly invite you to join us there, and meanwhile wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year.
