Free admission – no ticket required

  1. String Quartet No 27 in D Op 20 No 4 - (Franz) Joseph Haydn
  2. String Quartet No 1, 'Métamorphoses nocturnes' - György Ligeti

The Echéa Quartet was formed in September 2017 by postgraduate students at the Royal Academy of Music. Within a few weeks of playing together they were accepted onto the Davey Posnanski Chamber Music Scheme, and were awarded the St Peter’s Chamber Music Prize in association with the Royal Academy, for which they performed as part of the Eaton Square Concert Series, 2018. The Echéa Quartet have performed in masterclasses with members of the Belcea, Piatti and London Haydn Quartets, and took part in the masterclass series of the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, where they worked with Miguel da Silva, Raphael Todes and Christoph Richter. Notable performances include the Brundibár Arts Festival, a project alongside the Nash Ensemble at Wigmore Hall, and the inaugural season of the Waterperry Opera Festival. The Echéa Quartet were chosen as the Fellowship Quartet at the Wintergreen Summer Music Academy this summer, and performed a residency in Ferrandou, Dordogne, in collaboration with the British baritone, David Wilson-Johnson. This year, the quartet will perform at the Musikverein in Vienna, at a contemporary music festival in Greece, and on tour of the West Coast of North America.
