Named after Villiers Street in London’s colourful musical epicentre, the Villiers Quartet (VQ) encompasses the grand and iconic spirit of the extraordinary music tradition in London. The VQ has developed an international reputation for its performances of British music and has been featured in numerous festivals including the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival, the Brit Jazz Fest, the Hungerford Arts Festival, and the British Music Society. The ensemble is winner of the 2015 Radcliffe Chamber Music Competition, and holds the position of Quartet-in-Residence at Oxford University’s Faculty of Music. Additionally, the VQ has presented masterclasses at Dartmouth College, the University of Nottingham, Syracuse University, Goshen College, and Indiana University South Bend. Upcoming highlights include their Netherlands debut at the Festival Kamermuziek aan de Berkel, and the release of the first complete recording of the quartets by English composer Peter Racine Fricker.
