Winners of the Elias Fawcett Trust for an Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the Royal Over-Seas League Competition finals, the Lipatti Piano Quartet are one of the UK's leading young chamber ensembles. They are delighted to have been selected to feature as a Recommended Artist in the 2019/20 Making Music Selected Artists Guide.
Three years after forming in 2013, they were selected to perform on the final night of the PLG Young Artists Spring Series at St John’s Smith Square, as part of the Park Lane Group’s 60th anniversary season. In 2017 they made their Wigmore Hall debut as part of the Monday Platform series, in association with the Park Lane Group.
Since its inception, the group has been fortunate to work with esteemed musicians including Maxim Rysanov, Simon Rowland-Jones, Krysia Osostowicz and Alasdair Beatson. In 2015 the quartet undertook a residency at Le Brel, France, where they spent a week intensively rehearsing and performing. Other recent venues have included the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, The Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Bath Pump Room, Old Theatre Royal Bath, The Forge Camden, Windsor Castle and Bedford School, where they were Ensemble in Residence for 2015/16.
The Lipattis have worked with composers including Mark Anthony Turnage, Huw Watkins, Alex Woolf and in 2016 they gave the UK premiere of Francisco Coll’s recent piano quartet "Cuando el niño era niño…".
