‘Style, assurance and direction from the first bar – an interpretation whose confidence and polish didn’t preclude a sense of real drama.’ – Richard Bratby (classical writer and critic)
Winners of the 2023 Kirckman Concert Society Artists and recipients of the prestigious Tunnell Trust Awards in 2021, the Elmore Quartet is a young ensemble founded in 2017 at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK. Following the completion of their studies, the Elmores accepted the position of Junior Fellows in Chamber Music at the Royal Northern College of Music from 2021 to 2023.

Over the past two years, the Elmore Quartet has made multiple recordings for BBC Radio 3 and has performed at renowned UK venues, including Wigmore Hall, Conway Hall, and Oxford’s Holywell Music Room. In 2020, the Quartet proudly launched the Elmore Chamber Music Festival, and it has since become an annual event held in the village of Elmore, Gloucestershire, every August.
Presently, holding the position as Chamber Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, the Elmore Quartet have enjoyed a busy past year performing across the UK and Europe. Noteworthy collaborations have included performances with the Jerusalem Quartet, Elias Quartet, NOVO Quartet and pianist Keigo Mukawa.
