Consone QuartetThe young London-based Consone Quartet, a laureate of the ‘eeemerging programme,’ presents period-instrument performances of three major works of the string quartet repertory. On this release Joseph Haydn (op.77 no.1) and Felix Mendelssohn (opp.12 and 81) sound extraordinarily fresh and spontaneous from their bows. Formed at the Royal College of Music in 2012, the Consone Quartet focuses on exploring Classical and Early Romantic repertoire on period instruments. The winner of the Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Prize in London, 2016, Consone was also awarded two prizes at York Early Music Competition 2015. Consone has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Brighton Early Music Festival, Buxton Festival, The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace, and recently at Wigmore Hall. In addition to their concertizing, they have collaborated with several notable musicians including soprano Gillian Keith, flautist Ashley Soloman, and many more.
