The Villiers Quartet is winner of the First Prize of the 2015 Radcliffe Chamber Music Competition, and Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Oxford.


Hailed as one of the most charismatic and adventurous quartets of the British chamber music scene (The Strad), the Villiers Quartet have developed an international reputation as exceptional interpreters of English composers including Elgar, Britten and Delius. Formed in 2011, they have been declared one of the best young quartets around today (Jerry Horner, Fine Arts Quartet), and their performances of Shostakovich and Tischenko have been hailed as masterful playing.(Classical Source)
