Our latest news

“Fantastic Quartet! They made my daughters wedding a day we will never forget, and so many people people commented to us what a wonderful day it was and how brilliant the quartet were. They are so good they can take “off the cuff requests”. True musicians to the core. They must be good because they even turned the head of Benny Gallagher, of “Gallagher and Lyle” fame, now that’s a solid gold recommendation!! Thank you again Capriccio.”

“I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to you and of course the rest of the quartet for playing at our wedding on the 10th September. You were absolutely amazing and so flexible and accomodating. You really helped make our day perfect and will cherish these memories always.”


“We just wanted to say a huge thank you for Friday! We had the time of our lives – it was an amazing day! The music was superb! We loved it. It was beautiful and really just as we hoped. Thank you so so much!”


“The quartet were absolutely fantastic! They played a great mix of classical pieces that were well received by our guests. The perfect touch to our outdoor drinks reception.”


Our Music

You can listen to and watch us play by clicking on the videos on this page, as well as others which can be found on YouTube. We are always adding to our repertoire so please ask if there is any music you would like played which is not listed. We are extremely adaptable and able to move around to different locations at venues, but if performing outside we would naturally require shelter in the event of wind, rain or extreme heat to protect our valuable and precious antique instruments.
