Described as “engaging and responsive to the emotional worlds of each piece in turn”, the FITZROY QUARTET was formed in 2015 whilst all four members were studying at the Royal Academy of Music.
Following their studies, the Quartet were immediately appointed as Chamber Music Fellows at the Academy whilst simultaneously being named as Associate Ensemble at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, a position they held for three years.
In the years since their formation, they have won multiple prizes and awards. Most recently, they are Tunnel Trust Award Winners for the 2019/20 season as well as being chosen for the Cremona Quartet’s Le Dimore del Quartetto scheme.
