Originally formed in 2006, the Jubilee Quartet is now made up of four musicians from across the globe. Each member of the quartet brings their unique sense of cultural identity to the group, which thrives on musical inspiration from four different homelands: the Czech Republic, Canada, Spain, and England. .
The quartet has received glowing reviews from The Sunday Times, Classical Source, The Daily Telegraph, Gramophone, Strad Magazine and others for its debut recording of three Haydn quartets released in 2019 on Rubicon Classics.
Winners of the First Prize at the Gianni Bergamo Classic Music Award in Lugano, Switzerland in September 2019, the quartet maintains an active performance schedule across the UK and Europe, and enjoys collaborating with ProQuartet in Paris and ChamberStudio in London. Alongside performing in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Conway Hall, and the Purcell Room, the quartet has also been featured on BBC Radio 3 “In Tune”.
2020 saw the inauguration of the Jubilee String Quartet Academy as an online, live-streamed event connecting musicians and music lovers across the globe. The group is passionate about sharing the joy of quartet playing with young musicians, professionals, and amateurs alike, and its members have enjoyed a variety of outreach projects as part of the Live Music Now! scheme as well as working with young chamber music students at the Purcell School.
They have studied intensively with the renowned Günter Pichler at Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia in Madrid, and Rainer Schmidt at Musik-Akademie Basel, and are currently working with John Myerscough at London’s ChamberStudio.
The Jubilee Quartet is an Associate Ensemble at Birmingham Conservatoire of Music, where they work on repertoire with Oliver Wille.
The Jubilee Quartet would like to thank Nigel Brown and the Stradivari Trust, the Mears/Speers and Eyers families and Mike Down for their generous support.
