The Ysaÿe Quartet, regularly described as one of France’s finest ensembles, are also frequent attendees at London’s Wigmore Hall and other UK venues. Adored in their native France, the Quartet also thrill the UK critics:

“The Ysaÿe Quartet ranks among the most aristocratic of today’s chamber groups. They combine refinement with delicacy, intellectual rigour with emotional subtlety” The Guardian

Of a Wigmore Hall recital in 1999, The Strad exclaimed “The Ysaÿe Quartet’s lustrously large sound and interpretative unity is remarkable. This, coupled with its penetrating analytical skills and first-rate technical powers, makes it easy to understand the cult status the group has achieved ... This sold-out Wigmore Hall concert ... highlighted just what makes their style so special ... all in all, exquisitely tasteful and refined playing.”
