The RTÉ ConTempo Quartet is currently RTÉ's Quartet in Residence and is also the resident quartet on the West Coast of Ireland in the Galway Music Residency. Praised as a 'fabulous foursome' (Irish Independent) and noted for performances which are 'exceptional' (The Strad) and 'full of imaginative daring' ( Irish Times), the RTÉ ConTempo Quartet has forged a unique place in Irish musical life.
