A fresh and talented string quartet featuring New Zealand-born violist Bryony Gibson-Cornish, Marmen Quartet is one to watch.

Joint winners of the Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Grand Prize at the 2019 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, 2018 Royal Over-Seas League Competition and Music in the Round ‘Bridge’ Scheme, they are current String Quartet Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.

Marmen Quartet offers you a journey through time to the present and back again. They begin with a quartet from Schubert’s more mature output, the Quartettsatz in C minor, which shines for its sweeping transformations between turbulence and sweetness. Debussy’s first impressionist masterwork, the Quartet in G minor, then carries Marmen Quartet from the classical to the 20th century, before we arrive firmly in the 21st century with a commission from Salina Fisher.

The dial of time turns full circle to Mendelssohn’s final quartet, a neat juxtaposition of old and new from a young quartet embarking on an exciting international career.
