The best storytellers display an infectious passion. And the Heath Quartet—which in 2013 became the first ensemble in 15 years to win the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award— exemplifies this. The ensemble performs, says The Telegraph, “with fierce intelligence and feeling, passion and virtuosity.”
The members’ commitment to chamber music has led them far beyond London, where they are professors of Chamber Music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Past tours have included Carnegie Hall, the Kilkenny Arts Festival, the BBC Proms, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Queen’s Hall Edinburgh, and Lincoln Center. Their 2016 recording of the Tippett quartets on Harmonia Mundi were praised by Gramophone as “A tremendous achievement.”
