Archaeus String Quartet – Beethoven (2)

Sunday 21st May 2017 at 2.45pm.  Venue opens at 2.15pm.

The Under Ground Theatre’s 17th season of Chamber Recitals concludes with a second visit from the highly acclaimed Archaeus String Quartet, continuing to play the complete cycle of Beethoven Quartets.


Archaeus String Quartet are Ann Hooley & Rosemary Lock (violins), Elizabeth Turnbull (viola) and Martin Bradshaw (cello).

No strangers to premiere performance venues across the globe, the quartet enjoys a broad repertoire and several composers have written works specifically for the group including Antonin Tucapsky, Jeffrey Joseph, Jenni Roditi and Leonard Salzedo.

CD recordings include the quartet by Minna Keal; quartets by York Bowen with the quintet for bass clarinet with Timothy Lines; quartets by Ethel Smyth, Amy Beach and Susan Spain-Dunk; Leonard Salzedo; and quartets by Cyril Scott.

All five of their CDs have been received with great critical acclaim.  The recording of Salzedo quartets and the sonata for violin and viola (written for and performed by Ann Hooley and Elizabeth Turnbull) was selected as Editor’s Choice in the Gramophone Magazine.
