'This recital showed just why the Doric Quartet has recently been attracting so much praise. From the technical standpoint the players are superb, but, beyond that, they blend together as though of one mind - the touchstone of any such group.' www.classicalsource.com

The Doric String Quartet were formed in 1998 at Pro Corda, the National School for Young Chamber Music Players, and from 2002 studied on the Paris-based ProQuartet professional training program during which time they worked with members of the Alban Berg, Artemis, Hagen and LaSalle Quartets as well as with Gyorgy Kurtag.
The Doric String Quartet have collaborated with artists including Ian Bostridge, Philip Langridge and the Florestan Trio. In Autumn 2010 the quartet made a highly acclaimed American debut with recitals at the Frick Museum in New Year and the Library of Congress in Washington. Recently, they have also held recitals at the Berlin Konzethaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Hamburg Laeiszhalle as well as in Brussels, Frankfurt, Lucerne, Milan and Paris. Outside of Europe, they have also travelled to Japan, Israel, Australia and New Zealand to peform.
Highlights of the 2011-2012 season include the quartet's debut at the Vienna Koncerthaus, return tours to the USA, Denmak, Israel and a residency in Augusta. Further to this, they will be giving recitals in Hanover, Geneva and Prague. UK engagements will include concerts at Wigmore Hall, a 'Music in the Round' tour and peformances in Manchester and York. They also plan to continue their long term residency at Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford-upon-Avon.
