The Alba Quartet is a young, vibrant Scottish-based ensemble, which is fast establishing itself as one of Scotland’s premier quartets. Founded in 2003, it comprises graduates of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow and the Royal College of Music in London. They have toured the music societies and arts guilds of Scotland, been resident at St Andrews University, and have given recitals at several of the most important music festivals. They have received tuition from many world class musicians, working most closely with William Conway and the Brodsky Quartet.
Currently the Alba Quartet is the inaugural recipient of Enterprise Music Scotland’s prestigious chamber music residency project. This is a new two-year scheme designed to cultivate and encourage fine chamber music playing in Scotland. It provides them with the opportunity to receive expert coaching, and to collaborate with contemporary composers.
Upcoming engagements include several tours and a planned trip to China in 2009.
