The Barbican Quartet is an original voice on the chamber music scene, based between London and Munich, delighting audiences with their intimately powerful performances and virtuosic ensemble playing.

A multi award-winning ensemble, they made their Wigmore Hall debut in 2017 and were first prize winners of the 2022 ARD International String Quartet Competition.

A varied programme begins with the first of Haydn’s “Prussian” quartets, continues with Alban Berg’s two movement quartet Opus 3, and culminates in one of Beethoven’s late, great quartets written towards the end of his life and including one of his most sublime movements, dedicated by the composer as: "A Convalescent's Holy Song of Thanksgiving to the Deity, in the Lydian Mode."
