Werther Ensemble

The Werther Ensemble gave their first performance as a piano quartet in February 2013, when they played Brahms’ op 60 -’the Werther’ - from which they take their name.  In May 2013 they made an enormous impact at the inaugural Whittington International Chamber Music Festival, of which James Barralet is the Artistic Director, and were again resident ensemble in 2014.

Their schedule for 2014/15 includes a series of concerts at St John’s Smith Square exploring European piano quartets, a return to the Whittington International Festival playing Mendelssohn several performances of rare English works for the genre.

Tonight’s programme consists of works written while their composers were at the earliest stages of their careers, from Beethoven’s youthful C major quartet, through Mendelssohn virtuosic showpiece and culminating in Walton’s colourful and exciting early masterpiece.

Delta Piano Trio

The Delta Piano Trio was founded in Salzburg (Austria) by three young Dutch performers: violinist Gerard Spronk, cellist Irene Enzlin and pianist Vera Kooper.  

Since its founding in 2013, the Delta Piano Trio has performed extensively in The Netherlands, Austria and the United Kingdom. In the spring of 2014 the trio won the first prize, as well as a special prize for the performance of a twentieth-century work, at the 7th International S. Vainiunas Chamber Music Competition in Vilnius, Lithuania. Their debut at the 4th Salzburger Kammermusikfestival, in a shared concert with the Borodin Quartet, was highly acclaimed by both audience and critics. In September 2014 the trio won a first prize at the Salieri-Zinetti International Chamber Music Competition in Verona, Italy. 

The Delta Piano Trio has the privilege to work under the guidance of Wolfgang Redik (founding member of the Vienna Piano Trio) and Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), as well as world-renowned pianist Stephen Kovacevich, violinists Vera Beths and Johannes Meissl, and violist Hatto Beyerle (founding member of Alban Berg Quartet).

Coull Quartet

This year the Coull Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary. Formed in 1974 by students at the Royal Academy of Music under the guidance of renowned quartet leader, Sidney Griller, they rapidly achieved national recognition, and were appointed Quartet-in-Residence by the University of Warwick in 1977, a post which they still hold today. The Quartet, which includes two of its founder members, has performed and broadcast extensively throughout the UK, and has made tours of Western Europe, the Americas, Australia, China, India and the Far East.

Since the mid-1980s the Coull Quartet has made over 30 recordings featuring a wide selection of the repertoire closest to their hearts, from the complete Mendelssohn and Schubert quartets to 20th century and contemporary British chamber music. Their CD of quartets by Maw and Britten on the Somm label has received universal acclaim; in addition to being featured in ‘Editor’s Choice’ in The Gramophone, it was also described as the ‘Benchmark Recording’ by BBC Music Magazine. Their recordings of music by Sibelius and Ian Venables have also received excellent reviews in the major musical publications.

The rare combination of maturity and freshness which characterises the Quartet’s performances is often singled out by reviewers:

“Here the playing is so brimful with enthusiasm and commitment, and at the same time so infused with the accumulated wisdom of three decades, that the music simply reinvents itself as it should”. (The Strad)

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.
