Odysseus Trio

After studies at Cambridge University and IMS Prussia Cove, and extensive chamber music experience with a number of ensembles, Sara, Gregor and Clare have established the Odysseus Piano Trio.

Badke Quartet

The Badke Quartet, formed in 2002, is widely recognised as one of Britain’s finest string quartets. The Quartet has received widespread acclaim for its energetic and vibrant performances.

The Quartet has worked with some of the world’s greatest string quartets and studied with Gabor Takács-Nagy at IMS Prussia Cove and members of the Alban Berg Quartet in Cologne. From 2005 to 2009 the Quartet held the Senior Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music.

The Badke Quartet regularly perform at concert halls and festivals in the UK and abroad, including Aldeburgh, Montreux, Bad Kissingen, Malmö, Mecklenburg, Ljubljana, Santander, Aix-en-Provence, Verbier Presteigne, West Cork, London’s Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, and the Musikverein in Vienna.

Nous Quartet

Noûs (nùs) is an ancient greek word whose meaning is mind and therefore rationality, but also inspiration and creativity.

Quartetto Noûs, formed by four young Italian musicians, was founded in 2011 in "Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana" in Lugano, Switzerland, where they had the chance to meet internationally renowned teachers as Aldo Campagnari ("Quartetto Prometeo"), Bruno Giuranna, Carlo Chiarappa (“Nuovo Quartetto”), Massimo Quarta, Robert Cohen ("Fine Arts Quartet"). 

The Quartet is attending the prestigious "Walter Stauffer Academy" in Cremona studying with "Quartetto di Cremona" and with Professor Reiner Schmidt ("Hagen Quartett") in the "Musik Akademie Basel". 

The Quartet won the first prize in the International Competition "Luigi Nono" of Venaria Reale in Turin and was invited to play for the season "I Concerti del Quirinale" in Rome live broadcasted on Radio3.

It won the first prize in the "International Music Competition Anemos" in Rome and, in 2014, it was awarded a special mention in the context of the "Sony Classical Talent Scout Competition" in Madesimo, Italy.
