It is one of Europe's most successful quartets, internationally recognised for its beauty of sound, clarity of texture and integrity of interpretation within an unusually wide and varied range of repertoire. The Quartet is the resident string quartet for Raidió Teilifís Éireann, Ireland's national broadcasting service. The group are Artists in Residence at University College Cork and founders of the internationally acclaimed West Cork Chamber Music Festival.
