The Doric String Quartet was formed in 1998 at Pro Corda, The National School
for Young Chamber Music Players, in Suffolk. Since 2002 they have been
studying on the Paris-based ProQuartet (European Centre for Chamber Music)
Professional Training Program, where they have worked with Walter Levin of the
LaSalle Quartet, and with members of the Alban Berg, Artemis and Hagen
Quartets. They have recently embarked on an intensive period of study under
Rainer Schmidt of the Hagen Quartet. Earlier this year the Doric Quartet was
selected for representation by Young Concert Artists Trust (YCAT).
In 2001 the Doric Quartet made their Purcell Room debut in a Park Lane Group
concert. They have since gone on to give several concerts under the auspices
of the PLG, including three performances of Haydn’s Seven Last Words at the
Purcell Room and four evening recitals at Wigmore Hall. In 2004 they were
invited to perform Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet with Michael Collins at Wigmore
Hall’s Christmas Concert. Abroad the Quartet has given recitals in Austria,
France, Italy and Germany, appearing at Chateau de Fontainebleau near Paris,
the Associazione Alessandro Scarlatti series in Naples, and at the ORF
(Austrian Radio) Funkhaus in Vienna.
In 2000 the Doric Quartet won the inaugural Bristol Millennium Chamber Music
Competition, which led to a five year residency at the Wiltshire Music Centre
in Bradford-on-Avon, where they are successfully developing a local audience
for chamber music. They also work with young musicians throughout Wiltshire in
a programme managed and funded in partnership with Wiltshire County Council.
This summer the Quartet make their debut at the Edinburgh International
Festival. They go on to appear at the Purcell Room (25 September) and give the
world premiere of a work by Gordon Kerry for quartet and voice with Catherine
Wyn-Rogers at Wigmore Hall (29 October) to where they will twice return for a
Kirckman Concert Society recital (4 November) and for a Coffee Concert (27
May). The Quartet continue to give recitals at festivals and venues throughout
the UK including concerts at Bridgewater Hall, Conway Hall, St. George’s
Bristol and the King’s Lynn Festival. Abroad the Quartet give concerts in
France and Italy.
Alex Redington and Jonathan Stone completed their postgraduate studies at the
Royal Academy of Music in 2005 where they studied with Howard Davis. Mark
Braithwaite graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2005 and is now a
student of Thomas Riebl. John Myerscough graduated from Selwyn College,
Cambridge in 2003 and now studies with Louise Hopkins at the Guildhall School
of Music and Drama.
