Recently selected as BBC New Generation Artists, the Consone Quartet was formed at the Royal College of Music in London with the aim to explore Classical and Early Romantic repertoire on period instruments. Winners of the 2016 Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Prize in London, Consone were also awarded two prizes at the 2015 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, including a place on the ‘EEEmerging’ Emerging European Ensembles Scheme associated with the Ambronay Festival in France and six other early music festivals across Europe.

Recent highlights include an acclaimed debut at London’s Wigmore Hall, performances at King's Place, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cheltenham, Lammermuir, Buxton and King’s Lynn Festivals. The Consone Quartet is rapidly gaining international recognition performing in France, Germany, Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Belgium (AMUZ in Antwerp), Italy, Switzerland and in spring 2018 they toured in South America performing across Bolivia and Peru.

The quartet’s debut CD, featuring music by Haydn and Mendelssohn, was released on the Ambronay Label in October 2018 and was followed by a London launch kindly hosted by the Royal Over-Seas League in London and a tour of the North of England and Scotland. The disk has received a number of glowing reviews.

Consone regularly collaborates with other musicians, such as the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, members of the Hanover Band, Mahan Esfahani, Gillian Keith, Jane Booth, Ashley Solomon, and Colin Lawson. The quartet participated in the “Brighton Early Music Festival Live!” mentoring scheme and in a number of Chamber Studio masterclasses at King's Place, London. In 2018 the group was selected to become a Concordia Foundation Artist.
