Winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society award for Young British String Players, the RUISI QUARTET has established a reputation as a charismatic and expressive ensemble, delivering performances that are “strikingly immediate, committed and direct” (Chichester Observer, 2014). Their programme for this concert is entitled “Folk Synthesis”.

“Folk Synthesis”


PURCELL                     Fantasias (selection)

BARTÓK                     Quartet No 2 Sz.67

BEETHOVEN              Quartet Op 59 No 2 in   E minor

Founded in 2012 by half-Sicilian brothers Alessandro and Max, the quartet perform regularly throughout the UK and Europe and have been selected as Kirckman Concert Society Artists for 2018/19.

Recent highlights have included a tour of Scotland in 2017, live performances on BBC Radio 3 and the use of the Vuillaume 'Evangelist' instruments that were recently on short-term loan to the quartet. The quartet are grateful for the long-term loan of a specially made set of matching instruments by Harris & Sheldon of London.
