Based in Berlin and London, the members of the prize-winning Hieronymus Quartet draw on their contrasting musical backgrounds and their wealth of experience with various other ensembles to shape their own unique voice. The quartet has been acclaimed for its vivid and dynamic performances of the rich and complex string quartet repertoire.
The quartet completed their first Beethoven Cycle at Woodhouse Music last year and look forward to concerts in the UK and in Europe as well as an exciting collaboration with videographer Carolin Röckelein during the coming season.
As well as a being awarded a residency at Aldeburgh Music, the quartet have received masterclasses from David Waterman and Ferenc Rados at IMS Prussia Cove. They have performed throughout the UK including at the Holywell Music Room in Oxford and King's Place in London.
"The Hieronymus Quartet produced a thrilling account; incisive in detail and, when required, light in touch. As a group the players scaled huge shifts of dynamic and colour, and the three lower instruments formed a smooth, honeyed accompanying trio when called for."
The Strad Magazine
"These are players of considerable ability and intelligence; as a quartet they have a great future ahead of them."
