Piatti Quartet

"The Piatti Quartet gave a delightfully soft-grained performance of Haydn’s Bird Quartet, and a hugely intense one of Beethoven’s Quartetto Serioso, with two contemporary pieces in between. Simon Holt’s Fourth Quartet Cloud House, here receiving its world premiere, conjured an imaginary walk through a real-life abandoned house on a Welsh mountain.”

Introduction

“Shroud (his third quartet) and Winter’s Edge (fourth), performed here with passionate dexterity by the Piatti Quartet…. In the capable hands of the Piatti, it’s suffused with energy and purpose: from keening unisons to nervy pizzicatos; thick, splintering counterpoint and aggressive down-bows that feel like repeated blows to the body.”

Kate Wakeling, BBC Music Magazine, June 2023 (CD ‘Winter's Edge’, 5* Review)


The distinguished Piatti Quartet are widely renowned for their ‘profound music making’ (The Strad) and their ‘lyrical warmth’ (BBC Music Magazine). Since their prizewinning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, they have performed all over the world and made international broadcasts from many countries. The Piatti Quartet is Resident Quartet at Kings Place in London.

Since their inception they have always had projects in the recording studio with critically acclaimed releases. Accolades in 2023 include Gramophone’s ‘Editor’s Choice for the Month’ with NMC, a five-star review from BBC Music Magazine with Delphian and in 2022 they were nominated for ‘Recording of the Year’ with both Limelight and Gramophone for their collaborative disc on the Hyperion label.
