Thames Concerts' 2020/21 Series welcomes the Behn String Quartet: Laura Lunansky and Alicia Berendse (violin), Ana Teresa de Braga e Alves (viola), and Ghislaine McMullin (violoncello) .

Thames Concerts is one of London's premiere recital series (established in the 1960s). Despite ongoing challenges to the whole music industry relating to the covid-19 situation, we are proud that our concerts will continue to take place in a safe, regulated environment, the home of the series, St Andrew’s Church, Surbiton.

The Behn Quartet is formed of players from England, Portugal, and the Netherlands. Winners of the 2017 Orlando International Chamber Music Competition, they are currently an Associate Ensemble at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and previously held the Cavatina Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music in London. They take their name from Aphra Behn, the seventeenth-century playwright, political activist, and philanthropist of the arts.

Since their formation in 2015, the Behn Quartet have given recitals across Europe, including at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam, at the Fondazione Cini Venice and the Filarmonica Laudamo Messina in association with Le Dimore del Quartetto. They made their Wigmore Hall recital debut in 2018.
