About:
Winner of the 2014 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Competition, the Solem Quartet was formed in 2011 at the University of Manchester. The quartet takes its name from the university’s motto “arduus ad solem”, meaning “striving towards the sun”. In keeping with its name, the Solem Quartet’s first project was to play the Haydn Op. 20 “Sun” Quartets.

The quartet was delighted to have been selected for the prestigious Chamber Studio Mentorship 2014/2015, which allowed them to study intensively with the internationally renowned cellist Christoph Richter at Kings Place. The Solems also enjoy working with Live Music Now, giving concerts and workshops in several special needs schools and care homes across the UK.

Since September 2016 the Solem Quartet has been ‘Quartet in Residence’ at the University of Liverpool. They were also recently appointed ‘Ensemble in Residence’ at Aberystwyth MusicFest.

Programme:
Britten Three Divertimenti
Haydn Quartet No.64 in D major, Op.76, No.5
Schumann Quartet No. 3 in A major, Op.41
