The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet are rapidly earning a reputation as one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles of the moment. Most recently they won Gramophone Chamber Award 2016 for their recording of the complete string quartets of Sir Michael Tippett, and in May 2013 became the first ensemble in fifteen years to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award.
Formed in 2002 at the Royal Northern College of Music they were selected for representation by YCAT, awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Special Ensemble Scholarship and in 2012 won the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern where they are now regular visitors.
The Heath Quartet last appeared at a Sunday Afternoon Recital in 2012
