Significant moments in the upward rise of the ensemble include its Young Artists Award from the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2013 and three years later a Gramophone Award for its recording of Tippett’s quartets. The music of Fanny Mendelssohn is now receiving well-deserved attention: in the words of musicologist R Larry Todd, her quartet (1834) is ‘among the most imaginative and compelling reactions of a generation of Romantic composers who were the first to come to terms with the late style of Beethoven.’

      • String Quartet No. 3 Op. 94
