Winner of the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Award for chamber music in 2007, the Dante Quartet is known for its imaginative programming and the emotional intensity of its performances. The group was founded in 1995 at the International Musicians Seminar at Prussia Cove, Cornwall, and chose the name of Dante to reflect the idea of a great and challenging journey.
The Dante Quartet plays at major concert halls, music societies and festivals throughout the UK and in the past few years has appeared at the Bury St Edmunds, Buxton, Cheltenham, Newbury Spring, Presteigne and Three Choirs Festivals as well as Wigmore Hall and Kings Place in London. The quartet broadcasts regularly on BBC Radio 3 and has also performed in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Poland and Finland. In April 2010 the quartet played at Chateau Mcely in the Czech Republic, gave several concerts at the Peter de Grote Festival in Groningen in the Netherlands and was featured at the 2010, 2011 and 2013 Kings Place Festivals.
