The Quartet’s  international accolades  include prizes at both the 2014 Orlando International String  Quartet Competition  and the 2012 International Sandor Vegh String Quartet Competition. They  have established a   presence at major  venues including  Wigmore Hall, King’sPlace, Vienna  Konzerthaus, Queen  Elizabeth Hall and the  Purcell Room and at  festivals such as  Verbier, Aix-en-Provence, Aldeburgh and West Cork Chamber Music.

Energetic playing here from the Benyounes; the Bartok and Beethoven blister, while the Debussy is an animated delight in their hands..
