The Tippett Quartet appear regularly at King’s Place, the Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Bridgewater Hall, and perform frequently on BBC Radio 3. They have performed at the BBC Proms and toured Europe, Canada and Mexico. Their broad and diverse repertoire highlights the Tippett Quartet’s unique versatility.

Their impressive catalogue of recordings has been released on several labels including Naxos to universal critical acclaim and with classical chart topping success. The Tippett Quartet worked on a ground-breaking reimagining of Beethoven’s Op. 135 with composer/soundscape artist Matthew Herbert for a BBC Radio 3 broadcast, which was also used as the BBC TV ident. They have also given numerous world and UK premieres including newly discovered works by Tchaikovsky and Holst, as well as new works by John Adams, Howard Goodall and Alissa Firsova.

The Tippett Quartet have worked with Peter Maxwell Davies for a performance of his Ninth Quartet at the South Bank, with Anthony Payne on his Quartet No. 1 for a live BBC broadcast from the Spitalfields Festival, and Hugh Wood on his String Quartet No. 3 at the Presteigne Festival. This is the Tippett Quartet’s sixth recording for Naxos.
