Marmen Quartet

Prize-winning quartet to perform in Bath

The prize-winning Marmen Quartet will be performing in Bath on 5 October as part of Bath Recital’s popular 2019 programme.  We find out more about this extraordinary prizewinning ensemble…

Unique, exciting performances with an incredibly distinctive sound are the hallmarks of this formidable multi-award winning young quartet.

Here they are giving their Gold Medal winning performance of the Finale: Vivace from Haydn’s String Quartet in C major Op 74 No 1 at the finals fo the Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition 2018…

‘Performing is all about communication. It’s telling a story and I feel the Marmen are dedicated to this ideal’
Peter Cropper (Lindsay Quartet)

The Marmen Quartet were winners of the Grand Prize at the 2019 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition as well as the 2018 Royal Over-Seas League Competition and Music in the Round ‘Bridge’ Scheme.

They are currently String Quartet Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.

Their programme for the Bath Recitals Chamber Series 2019 presents repertoire for the String Quartet rooted in the classical age with music by the grand masters of the String Quartet: Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart.

These are juxtaposed against a mercurial work by the great 20th century Hungarian composer György Ligeti inspired by the Quartets of Bartók – in fact, it has even been referred to as ‘Bartók’s seventh string quartet’

Hayden, Mozart, Beethoven and Lygeti feature in the Marmen Quartet performance in Bath
