Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Strings/Keyboard Ensemble Prize, Consone Quartet is dedicated to exploring and recreating the sound-worlds of the Classical and early Romantic string quartet repertoire on period instruments. Currently in their third year of the Emerging European Ensembles Scheme, the group has performed at various festivals including the Buxton, Brighton and York Early Music Festivals, the Ambronay Festival in France and Ghislieri Musica in Pavia, Italy. Past performances have included venues such as the Wigmore Hall and the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. In 2016 the group was selected for the Brighton Early Music Live!
