The distinguished Piatti Quartet are widely renowned for their 'acute sensitivity' and their 'lyrical warmth'.  Since their prizewinning performances at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, they have performed all over the world and made international broadcasts from many countries.
The Piattis are famed for their diverse programming and for passionate interpretations across the spectrum of quartet writing, tailoring their performances with the violinists regularly swapping parts to bring out extra nuances and colours in every work.
Next season includes a debut at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and returns to the Wigmore Hall and Aldeburgh Festival.
Passionate champions of contemporary music, they have made groundbreaking commissions with leading UK composers 
They regularly teach at Trinity Laban, Royal Academy of Music, and Purcell School while also doing outreach in primary schools through the Cavatina Music Trust.
The Piatti Quartet takes its name from the great 19th-century cellist Alfredo Piatti, who was a leading professor and exponent of chamber music at the Royal Academy of Music.
