GSMD Fellowship 2020/2021
The quartet has been offered a chamber music fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama for the 2020/2021 academic year. The programme offers concert opportunities at the school and the Barbican Centre, and lessons and masterclasses with GSMD faculty and visiting professors. It also invites different possibilities for creating collaborative projects with Guildhall staff and students.
Back in July the quartet had the unique experience of attending the online edition of the annual Aix Académie. This was an exciting and new way to meet and learn from a number of experts in the music industry. The programme facilitated fascinating musical discussions with eminent musicians such as the violist and composer Garth Knox, and Jonathan Brown and Arnau Tomàs - both members of the Cuarteto Casals.
REVIEW | Charlotte Gardner for dCD Music | Album of the Month
" The guitar quintet is a joyful listen - played with palpable pleasure in the music and in each other, its dancing energy served up in exquisitely delicate and tender form, beautifully shaped and shaded, with the whole adding up to a gently ravishing timbral and colouristic feast."
