Edinburgh Quartet


Tristan Gurney, violin I
Philip Burrin, violin II
Michael Beeston, viola
Mark Bailey, cello

The Edinburgh Quartet was founded in 1960, quickly to become one of Britain’s foremost chamber ensembles. It achieved international recognition after winning the Contemporary Prize at the Evian-les-Bains String Quartet Competition and has since toured extensively across Europe, the Far East, North and South America and the Middle East. The Quartet has made numerous BBC Television and Radio 3 broadcasts and can also be heard on Classic FM. 2010 marked the Quartet’s fiftieth anniversary and it is now one of the oldest established and continuing chamber ensembles in the United Kingdom. The Quartet is resident at Edinburgh Napier and Aberdeen Universities and also collaborates with Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities. In addition to a regular classical concert series at each of these institutions, the Quartet is committed to nurturing talent and championing new music. The ensemble has worked with many important and prolific contemporary composers, including the Quartet’s patron, James MacMillan, Howard Blake, and Michael Tippett, who selected the Edinburgh Quartet’s recording of his First Quartet for re-release on EMI shortly before his death. Recent recordings include String Quartets of Hans Gál, Kenneth Leighton, and Matyas Seiber, as well as earlier discs of Beethoven, Haydn, Bartók, Schubert and Shostakovich.
