Echéa String Quartet

Finalists and prizewinners of the International Anton Rubinstein Chamber Music Competition, (2018) and Finalists in the Royal Overseas-League Music Competition (2019), the Echéa Quartet is a London-based string quartet formed in 2017 at the Royal Academy of Music. They have recently been awarded the role as Fellowship String Quartet for 2019/20 at the Royal Academy of Music. 

In 2017, the quartet were awarded the St Peter’s Chamber Music Prize, for which they have performed as part of the Eaton Square Concert Series. In the summer of 2018, the Echéa Quartet were the string-quartet-in-residence at Ferrandou Musique, Dordogne, where there gave recitals as well as collaborating with the British baritone, David Wilson-Johnson. They were also awarded the role of Fellowship Quartet at Wintergreen Performing Arts, where they toured across Virginia, and worked and performed with violinist Rachel Barton Pine. The Echéas were recently in residence at the Banff Centre of the Arts, where they made their Canadian debut.

Highlights of 2019 have included a performance of Haydn and Mendelssohn at the Musikverein in Vienna, as well as a collaboration with Marin Alsop at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. They have also been featured on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune. Dedicated to the performance of new music, the Echéa Quartet continue to foster their relationship with London-based composers and performed at the Krama Contemporary Music Festival in Athens, Greece. They will also be working closely with Harrison Birtwistle at the Royal Academy and Henning Kraggerud at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival. The Echéa Quartet are Concordia and City Music Foundation Artists.
