Current BBC New Generation Artists, the Consone Quartet was formed at the Royal College of Music in London with the aim to explore Classical and Early Romantic repertoire on period instruments. Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Prize in London, Consone were also awarded two prizes at the 2015 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, including the EUBO Development Trust Prize and a place on the ‘EEEmerging’ Emerging European Ensembles Scheme associated with the Ambronay Festival in France.
Performing highlights have included acclaimed concerts at London’s Wigmore Hall and Kings Place, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cheltenham, Lammermuir, Buxton and King’s Lynn Festivals. The Consone Quartet is rapidly gaining international recognition performing in France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland. Outside Europe the group has given recitals in Bolivia and Peru, and soon in Japan and the US.
The quartet’s debut disc, featuring music by Haydn and Mendelssohn, was released in 2018 on the Ambronay Label and it has received a number of glowing reviews.
