Winners of the Royal Overseas League Chamber Music Competition 2021, recipients of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Albert and Eugenie Frost Chamber Music Prize (2019/20) and the Hattori Foundation’s Senior Award (2021/22), the Echéa Quartet was formed in 2017 at the Royal Academy of Music, London.  It recently won the ‘Tremplin’ at the Philharmonie de Paris’s String Quartet Biennale (2020) and its members were prizewinners of the International Anton Rubinstein Competition (2017).  They are currently Chamber Music Fellows at the Royal College of Music, artists for the Kirckman Concert Society and City Music Foundation, and Yeomen of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.  The quartet is mentored by John Myerscough, Simon Rowland-Jones and Mathieu Herzog. 

With many thanks to the Harrison-Frank and City Music Foundations, the Echéa Quartet is fortunate to play on a quartet of W. E. Hill & Sons instruments and bows (2019). 

The quartet has appeared at international festivals such as Ferrandou Musique (France), Festival de los Siete Lagos (Argentina) and West Cork Chamber Music (Ireland).  It has also attended a residency at the Banff Centre (2019).  The quartet has performed in venues such as the Musikverein (Vienna), Wigmore Hall (London) and Philharmonie de Paris, and collaborated with Marin Alsop at the World Economic Forum (Switzerland).  The quartet was featured on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ and more recently on CBC National Radio (Canada) as part of their six week tour of the west coast of North America (2019).
