Winners of the St-Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, Hattori Foundation Award and the Martin Musical/Philharmonia Scholarship Fund, the Piatti Quartet are fast emerging as one
of the UK's leading young string quartets.
Previous recipients of the Tunnell Trust Award and selected as Park Lane Group (PLG) Young Artists
in 2010, the Piatti Quartet spent two years as Leverhulme Chamber Music Fellows at the Royal
Academy of Music. In 2012 The Piatti Quartet were chosen for the Future Classics 'Classical Tour' supported by the PLG and Foreign and Colonial Investment Trust, which included a concert tour and
CD recording, giving audiences around the UK a unique opportunity to see the 'stars of tomorrow',
and culminating in a Wigmore Hall appearance in April 2012.
Since 2009 they have performed at major venues throughout the UK including the Wigmore Hall,
the Purcell Room, Conway Hall, St Georges (Bristol), The Queens Hall (Edinburgh) and have
made appearances live on BBC Radio 3 numerous times. They have enjoyed several very exciting
collaboration projects with Austrian pianist Gottlieb Wallisch, including recording a CD of
Mozart Piano concerti on Linn records, and have made debut performances at both the Newbury
Spring Festival and the Bath International Festival.
