The Heath Quartet has performed at the Wooburn Festival for over a decade and their concerts are now cherished events in our classical music calendar.
The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet is one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles of the moment, steadily building a reputation for their upbeat and integrated sound. Their recording of Sir Michael Tippett’s string quartets (Wigmore Live) received widespread acclaim and won the 2016 Gramophone Chamber Disk of the Year. The Heath Quartet became the first ensemble in fifteen years to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award (2013).
Formed in 2002 at the Royal Northern College of Music they were selected for representation by YCAT, awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Special Ensemble Scholarship, and in 2012 won the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern where they are now regular invitees.
This year they have closed the Newcastle International Chamber Music Series at the Sage Gateshead, performed the world premiere of Nathan Williamson’s Quartet Black at the Aldeburgh Festival, a BBC Chamber Prom with Steven Osborne and further performances at Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Wigmore Hall and Boulez Saal, Berlin.
In May of this year Juliette Roos became the ensemble’s new joint leader alongside Sara Wolstenholme, replacing Marije Johnston, who stepped back due to an injury.
