The Times

First prize winners of the 2019 Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition as well as the 2018 St Martin in the Fields Chamber Music Competition, the Barbican Quartet were selected as Young Artists of 2020 in the St John’s Smith Square Scheme. They made their Wigmore Hall début in 2017 thanks to the Maisie Lewis Award, and were 2016 Park Lane Group Artists. In 2018 the Royal Philharmonic Society awarded them the Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize.

The Barbican Quartet has appeared in such festivals as the Montreal International String Quartet Academy, IMS Prussia Cove, Harmos Festival, Portugal and undertaken a residency in Aldeburgh in 2017. Their performances have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 as a part of the Barbican Total Immersion and BBC Proms.
