About the Coull Quartet

The magnificent, seasoned Coull are back in Berkhamsted. “Here the playing is so brim-full with enthusiasm and commitment, and at the same time so infused with the accumulated wisdom of decades, that the music simply reinvents itself as it should”. (The Strad)

Formed in 1974 at the Royal Academy of Music they rapidly achieved national recognition and were appointed Quartet-in-Residence by the University of Warwick in 1977, a post which they still hold today. The Quartet, which includes two of its founder members, has performed and broadcast extensively throughout the UK, and has made tours of Western Europe, the Americas, Australia, China, India and the Far East.

Since the mid-1980s the Coull Quartet has made over 30 recordings featuring a wide selection of the repertoire closest to their hearts, from the complete Mendelssohn and Schubert quartets to contemporary British music.
