The distinguished Piatti Quartet are widely renowned for their ‘acute sensitivity’ and their ‘lyrical warmth.’ Since their prizewinning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, they have performed all over the world and made international broadcasts from many countries.

The Piatti are famed for their diverse programming and for passionate interpretations across the spectrum of quartet writing, tailoring their performances with the violinists regularly swapping parts to bring out extra nuances and colours in every work.

Their studio recordings, released through Linn, Somm, Champs Hill, and NMC record labels, have garned critical acclaim. Recently they have formed a relationship with Delphian Records by recording the works of Mark-Anthony Turnage, including their commission of his 4th String Quartet, ‘Winter’s Edge.’

Previous high profile partnerships include Ian Bostridge, Nicky Spence, Michael Collins, Belcea Quartet, Janina Fialkowska, Melvyn Tan, Julius Drake, Katherine Broderick and Adam Walker.

Passionate champions of contemporary music, they have made groundbreaking commissions with leading UK composers such as Joseph Phibbs, Emily Howard and Mark-Anthony Turnage, alongside many premieres with composers such as Simon Holt, Freya Waley-Cohen and Darren Bloom.

The Piatti Quartet take their name from the great 19th century cellist Alfredo Piatti, who was a leading professor and exponent of chamber music at the Royal Academy of Music.

"A signally impressive young ensemble." The Sunday Times
"This youthful quartet treated us to one of the most spirited and engaging performances I have ever experienced, bringing a wonderful joie de vivre to the music." The Northern Echo
