The Gildas Quartet have performed to critical acclaim at major venues and on BBC Radio 3. Praised for their ‘energy, verve and refreshing approach’, their bold and explorative attitude to performance has been recognised by the International Franz Schubert and Modern Music Competition, Graz, where they won first prize. In the past few years they have given recitals at international festivals including Oxford Lieder, Kings Lynn, Two Moors and Cheltenham.
Katherine Spencer made her concerto debut at 14 at the Royal Festival Hall and has since performed there as concerto soloist a further three times. She has also appeared as soloist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, The Academy of St Martin in the Fields Orchestra at the Barbican Centre and at Birmingham Symphony Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, made many live Radio 3 solo broadcasts, and performs regularly on Classic FM and European radio stations.
