Zelkova Quartet

Winners of the 2017 St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition, the Manchester-based Zelkova Quartet has been praised for performing ‘with a remarkable zeal and intensity’ (Herald Scotland). The quartet are Hattori Foundation Senior Award winners and were recipients of the Elias Fawcett Trust Prize for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the 2014 Royal Overseas League Competition. The quartet have featured numerous times on BBC Radio 3 including a performance as part of the BBC Proms Plus Portrait series and a live broadcast on the In Tune programme. The quartet has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the Royal Overseas League’s programme of events at the festival. The quartet takes its name from the beautiful Zelkova tree, which varies enormously in appearance depending on its species. Originally the Zelkova tree was common throughout Northern Europe and North America but can now be found in various locations across the globe from Southern Europe to Eastern Asia.
