Villiers Quartet

The Villiers Quartet From Home commissions originated with a desire to process the recent experiences of the global pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests through music. This digital-only EP features music by Florence Anna Maunders, Philip Herbert, Alex Ho, Robert Fokkens and Jasmin Kent Rodgman.

The quartets were written in the course of a larger Oxford University project called Diversity and the British String Quartet, which used the string quartet as a lens through which to reflect on an extraordinary period of pandemic and protests.In diverse ways, the five composers of the From Home commissions have wrestled with the questions that have arisen through this turbulent year, creating a unique collection of artistic impressions of being at home in 2021.
