Winners of the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London, this young French ensemble are already making waves on the international concert circuit and were invited to join BBC Radio 3's "New Generation Artists" scheme last year. Their compatriot Ravel's beautiful quartet is the lyrical centrepiece of this marvellous programme which begins with one of Haydn's most inventive quartets and climaxes with the first of Beethoven's late, great quartets.

"Their Beethoven had style, energy, huge potential and, above all, a sense of risk. These four young Frenchmen made the music smile, and would have made Beethoven do the same.
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer
