"The audience were quite transfixed by the Purcell and the Faure, and not surprisingly, astonished at Mozart."
"They are incredibly talented, motivated and artistically driven to perform."
The Argyll String Quartet was formed in 2009 whilst its founding members
were studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Since then, the Quartet has performed all over Scotland at notable venues such as Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriar's Kirk and St. Giles' Cathedral as well as abroad on the island of Ischia, Italy. They have broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland.
They were Highly Commended in the Mabel Glover String Quartet Competition and were finalists in the Governor’s Chamber Music Prize in the same year.
The Argyll String Quartet has received coaching from some of the world’s leading chamber musicians, notably the Brodksy String Quartet and Peter Manning of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. For five years they were mentored
by Tamas Fejes - soloist, Assistant Leader of the Royal Scottish National
Orchestra and First Violin with the Fejes Quartet.
All highly accomplished solo and orchestral performers, each member of the Argyll String Quartet has been taught by many of Europe’s leading soloists and teachers including Igor Ozim and Ilya Gringolts amongst others.
All of the musicians associated with the Argyll String Quartet have extensive experience playing with many of the UK's leading orchestras such as The Orchestra of Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet, BBCSSO and Opera North.
