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”
