SOLEM STRING QUARTET
Tuesday 6 October - Stratford TOWN HALL
The Solem Quartet has established itself as one of the most innovative and adventurous quartets of its generation.
Quartet No 13 in B flat major
Quartet No 65 in E flat major
Since winning the 2014 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Competition they have enjoyed a busy concert schedule, ranging from international tours to performances at venues such as London’s Wigmore and Queen Elizabeth Halls, Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and Oxford’s Holywell Music Room. Since 2016 they have been Quartet in Residence at the University of Liverpool, and they are also Ensemble in Residence at Aberystwyth MusicFest. Originally formed at the University of Manchester in 2011, the Solem Quartet takes its name from the university’s motto arduus ad solem – ‘striving towards the sun’.
“… it was the Solem Quartet’s strong emotional connection to [the] music which really shone through”
“I have no doubt that the future of Classical Music is safe in their hands” The Yorkshire Times, Elaine Annable
“heartfelt brio and winningly understated virtuosity”
“personable, and brimming with accomplishment and cohesion” Scunthorpe Concert Society, Clive Davies
