GIACOMO PUCCINI Crisantemi for String Quartet
JOHANNES BRAHMS String Quartet No 2 in A minor Op 51

The Elmore String Quartet found early success winning the RNCM’s Nossek and Hirsch Chamber Music Prizes for their performances of Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op.12, and Beethoven’s Quartet Op.132. These successes led to performances across the UK, performing recitals for Manchester Concert Society, the Lake District International Music Festival and the South Downs International Summer Music Festival, where they became the first ‘Quartet in Residence’ in 2018. The Elmore Quartet gained a second place finish at the CAVATINA Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition in Wigmore Hall.

In 2021, the Quartet were delighted to be appointed as Junior Fellows in Chamber Music at the RNCM for the academic year 2021/22. This year, the Quartet have enjoyed touring Scotland as well as recording Joseph Bologne Concertante Quartet No.2 as part of the BBC Philharmonic’s Diversity in Music programme for BBC Radio 3.
