The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet are fast earning a reputation as one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles of the moment. In May 2013 they became the first ensemble in 15 years to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award.

Formed in 2002 at the Royal Northern College of Music they were selected for representation by YCAT, were awarded the prestigious Borletti Buitoni Special Ensemble Scholarship and in 2012 won Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg Vorpommern.

Their recent CD of the quartets by Tippett has received superlative press reviews. The Heath Quartet members are Professors of Chamber Music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, individually holding instrumental teaching posts in the faculty.

".. the music's potency and bravura were conveyed with thrilling convictions.” The Guardian
