Formed in 2012 at London’s Royal College of Music, the Consone Quartet is noted for honest and expressive interpretations of classical and romantic repertoire. The Quartet’s debut CD of Haydn and Mendelssohn was met with great critical acclaim.

Consone has performed at Wigmore Hall, Snape Maltings, Cheltenham, Queen’s Hall Edinburgh, Stoller Hall Manchester and English Haydn Festivals, toured the north of England and Scotland, and hosted a ‘Consone & Friends’ series on Radio 3 from Dora Stoutzker Hall. In 2021 the quartet founded Barnstorming!, a chamber music series in barns supported by Continuo Foundation.

Future highlights include De Bijloke in Belgium, Heidelberg Festival in Germany and tours of North America and Japan. In addition to its BBT Fellowship, Consone is the first period instrument quartet selected as BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists (2019-2022), and prizewinners of both the Royal Over-Seas League Competition and the York Early Music Competition.
