Newly formed in September 2018, the Hill Quartet of four postgraduate students from the Royal Academy of Music were awarded the Sir John Barbirolli prize and are scholars of the Academy’s ASSET Scheme, a chamber music fast track course. They are mentored by John Myerscough (Doric Quartet) and have been coached by Jon Thorne, the Piatti Quartet, Hartmut Rohde and Levon Chilingirian.
Following recent recitals at the Marylebone and Petworth Chamber Music Festivals the quartet is looking forward to performances at St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James’ Piccadilly and at the Royal Academy of Music a series exploring lesser known quartet works including a new commission by composer Misha Mullov-Abbado. Their programme in Crediton will include Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 3, Op.18.
