Welcome to The Mavron Quartet Website
The Mavron Quartet is Wales’ leading String Quartet.
In 2010 it was appointed as the first Ensemble in Residence at the National Concert Hall of Wales, St David’s Hall, Cardiff.
Undertaking a variety of work including recitals, session, outreach and educational work, the quartet is always keen to pursue new projects.
To mark the Mavron Quartet’s tenth Anniversary in 2012, the quartet was awarded funding from the Arts Council of Wales, Tŷ Cerdd, the PRS for Music Foundation, the Fidelio Charitable Trust and the RVW Trust. This Mavron Quartet 10th Anniversary Project includes performances of commissioned works by Welsh composers Rhian Samuel and Gareth Wood (available on CD) plus a storytelling collaboration with Liz Weir and composer Ian Stephens.
The Mavron Quartet is committed to presenting regular recitals to the highest artistic level, offering innovative programming by combining mainstream repertoire with contemporary works.
Collaboration is a strong ethos of the quartet; exploring the boundaries and fusions of elements in the different art forms and working with other leading artists in their field.
Based in Wales, the Mavron Quartet is passionate about working within communities and making live music accessible to all, keen to inspire the growth of musical appreciation and enjoyment.
The Mavron Quartet is very proud to release The Mavron Quartet’s 10th Anniversary Commissions. You can buy this album and the Quartet’s concert album from our website. Buy Now
