“Breathless silence was followed by enthusiastic applause and loud bravos – the audience in the Kaisersaal of Schloss Corvey applauded frenetically after a stunning performance of Dvorak’s Slavonic string quartet by the British Albion Quartet, which brought the festival to a close.”
Neue Westfälische (Burkhard Battran), September 2018
“Tamsin Waley-Cohen’s Albion Quartet played Beethoven’s Op 74 string quartet, The Harp, with (...) bucketfuls of energy, teamwork and ideas.”
The Times (Richard Morrison), 2018
[Josef Suk’s Meditation] begins quietly but builds to a powerful climax before fading into silence and the highly committed performance left a deep impression and a desire to hear the work again.
East Anglian Daily Times (Gareth Jones), 2018
"The Albion Quartet displays the expected virtues of perfect (but natural-sounding) ensemble, a sense of intent communication between its four members and with the audience; they play with great vibrancy and a complementary sense of discipline and balance. They are evidently an ensemble eager to play works from right across the substantial repertoire for String Quartet, and also to design programmes which are far more than just a ‘random’ sequence of master works."
