The Esposito Quartet comprises four musicians with a combined bounty of experience as orchestra leaders, principals, professors, recital and recording artists, whose common love of the quartet treasury drove them in 2010 to ignore it no longer and seek each other out. Their name reflects their admiration for Michele Esposito, pianist and composer, who for forty years from 1888 was the initiator for much of the chamber music making in Dublin through the establishment of The Royal Dublin Society. They have enjoyed concert tours of Ireland with the support of Arts Council Touring Awards and with generous support from the National Quartet Foundation they have been fortunate to have commissioned and premiered new works by Donnacha Dennehy and Sebastian Adams. The Espositos have also enjoyed collaborating with many other artists such as Hugh Tinney, Redmond O Toole and Gareth Lubbe.
