The Esmé Quartet come to us as part of their prize-winner's tour from the 2018 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London.  This achievement was all the greater since they had then only been formed for 2 years.  They have since gathered more distinctions: HSBC Laureate of the Académie du Festival d’Aix, and prizes at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition, Irene-Steels Wilsing String Quartet Competition and the 55th Possehl Musikpreis Lübeck.   Their programme includes Schubert's emotionally searing, last, G major quartet. 

"...it was the Esmé’s monumental Schubert Quartet in G D887 that was the Michelin-starred meal.” Strings Magazine, UK, May 2018.
