String quartets always bring out the best of the Town Hall acoustic and the Victoria will exploit that to the full. Brimful of pedigree and experience, the Manchester based group comprises four stand-out musicians in their field. Each member has taken lead roles in other chamber ensembles including Psappha, the Chilingirian and Sorrel Quartets and Matisse Piano Quartet. They also share impressive credentials in solo work, leading orchestras and sections in opera and symphony orchestras, broadcasting and teaching. Since their inaugural concert in 2017, they have garnered an enviable calendar of recitals and workshops and the breadth of their work and immersion in every aspect of a musician’s life always promises performance and perspective of a rare quality.
