Repertoire

We have a wide repertoire to suit any occasion, encompassing classical, light classics, jazz standards and popular arrangements.

String Quartet

We have listed some of our current and most popular string quartet pieces below. This is by no means exhaustive, but gives an impression of the type of music we are most requested to perform, which forms the core of our repertoire. New arrangements are always being introduced, and hopefully you’ll see how flexible the string quartet can be, catering for all tastes and preferences.

We are happy to consider requests – our extensive selection of music means that we are likely to already have it in our collection. However please give us plenty of time to track down the music in case we do not have it! Please also note we cannot accept all requests because of copyright issues. In the past we have catered for evenings devoted to specific themes such as Russian music, Italian music, Christmas and other religious (or non-religious) settings.

If you would like us to play particular pieces that we cannot locate as ready-arranged, then we can arrange them specially for your occasion. We may make a small charge for arrangements to cover any costs incurred.
