Named after Villiers Street in London’s colourful musical epicentre, the Villiers Quartet encompasses the grand and iconic spirit of the extraordinary music tradition in London. Hailed as one of the most charismatic and “adventurous” quartets of the European chamber music scene (The Strad), the Villiers Quartet has developed an international reputation for its
performances of British music. The quartet has been praised for its “exquisite ensemble playing” (Seen & Heard International), and its performances have been hailed as “masterful.” (Classical Source).
The Villiers Quartet has been featured in numerous festivals including the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival, the Brit Jazz Fest, the Hungerford Arts Festival, and the British Music Society. The Villiers Quartet is winner of the 2015 Radcliffe Chamber Music Competition, and holds the position of Quartet-in-Residence at Oxford University’s Faculty of Music.
