❝ The audience listened with an intensity that was palpable, knowing that they were in the presence of great musical performance ❞
Thank you for coming to hear the concerts. It was such a joy and pleasure to play for a live audience! Most of the concerts were sold out (to the capacity we were allowed) and so there was a great atmosphere.
We felt a strong connection to you all. A kind of deep listening, great attention and a brilliant reception. Thank you!!
Live chamber music of the highest quality has returned to York! I do hope you will come again next year and to events that we might be running between now and then.

❝ This was world class playing full of sensitivity, colour and playing of such intensity that time seemed to stand still. ❞
❝ All the angst, passion and love in the Mendelssohn was beautifully captured by the quartet. It was intense, deep mind playing but which was also free and uncompromising. ❞
❝ These musicians played as though their very lives depended on it. And here was an audience spellbound. Truly world class performances. ❞
