Dulcinea Quartet – Biography
The Dulcinea Quartet was formed in 2008 at the Royal Academy of Music.
In 2011 the Quartet was joined by cellist Hannah Masson-Smyth, followed by violist Martin Wray in 2012. Whilst studying at the Academy, the Dulcinea Quartet has participated in masterclasses with the Wihan, Skampa and Vanbrugh Quartets. They have received coaching from eminent musicians such as Thomas Brandis, Martin Outram, Garfield Jackson, Hartmut Rohde and Richard Deakin.
The Quartet was commended for their performance of Schumann’s String Quartet No.2 in the Wolfe Wolfinsohn Quartet Prize. They perform frequently in and around London and are continuously looking for new and exciting repertoire.
The Quartet also enjoys performing modern works and are part of ‘ANIMA’, a small chamber ensemble which plays contemporary music alongside animated films. The Dulcinea Quartet recently toured Japan and are looking forward to returning in 2015.
