Festival Directors and Concert Organisers

Thank you for such a superb contribution to the festival. Your playing was magnificently assured and stylish -  as was your presentation. Your response to my request for a programme that shone an individual light on our 1918/2018 theme was considered and highly appropriate, not to mention appreciated!”
- Stewart Collins, Artistic Director, Petworth Festival

“I’m really excited by the Bloomsbury Quartet and am convinced that they will soon become a name on the classical music circuit.  They are forward-thinking with big ideas but also when they play, you get a real sense that they are on a mission to share their love of music with their audiences. Truly a group to watch out for.”
- Clare Norburn, Artistic Director, Stroud Green Festival

"The Bloomsbury Quartet were recommended to me by the Stroud Green Festival, having won a competition to become one of their associated artists. They played a fantastic recital for my series, an intense programme of Beethoven, Schubert and Britten. Their tempi suited the acoustics beautifully, and their musicality kept my attention throughout. 

As an organiser I found them a pleasure to work with: they got back to me very quickly and made life easy for me. I will be asking them back again when the opportunity arises!"
- Daniel Collins, Organiser & Artistic Director, MusicFor Concert Series


“…experience the Bloomsbury’s alluring sound… I instantly felt I had a genuine creative connection with the quartet, who are already such sensitive and responsive musicians despite being a relatively new group.

During the recording session with the Bloomsburys, I noticed their acute ability to shift effortlessly between discrete stylistic temperaments with a pervading fresh and adventurous attitude.“
