Lyric Quartet


From its formation in January 1990, the Lyric Quartet rapidly established itself as an ensemble very much in demand. The Quartet’s enthusiasm extends beyond the traditional chamber music repertoire and has included world premières of works by many leading composers. The Quartet has performed on television and broadcast regularly on radio, has built up an impressive discography following this early Metier recording.

The ensemble’s determination to broaden the appeal of classical music led to the fostering of a unique collaboration with visual artist Louise Purves, who became the ensemble’s “artist-in-residence” and who provided the cover painting for their Metier CD.
