Firmly established as one of the leading quartets of its generation, the Doric String Quartet receives enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the globe.  Winner of the 2008 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan and 2nd prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy, the Quartet performs in leading concert halls throughout Europe including Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus, Berlin Konzerthaus, Frankfurt Alte Oper, Hamburg Laeiszhalle and De Singel, and the Wigmore Hall. The Quartet tours annually to the United States and made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2017.  A recent highlight has seen the Quartet take on John Adams’ “Absolute Jest” for String Quartet and Orchestra.  Their recording with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Peter Oundjian was named Recording of the Month in BBC Music Magazine and praised for the “sumptuous sweetness and laser-like clarity” of its performance.
