Made up of leading international musicians who come together to perform using gut strings and with historical bows, the ensemble plays two works central to the quartet repertoire. Reviewing their disc including Beethoven’s Op. 95, Classical Music wrote of ‘vibrant, searching performances from this exciting young period-instrument quartet … the ensemble playing is little short of remarkable: the Beethoven second movement has rarely sounded so haunting’.
