The Carducci String Quartet is recognised today as one of Europe's top young string quartets. Half Irish, half British, they have won prizes at no less than seven International Chamber Music Competitions. They were winners of the 2007 CAG competition in the USA, first-prize winners at the 2004 Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition in Finland and winners of special prizes in the Bordeaux and London International String Quartet Competitions. They make a welcome return to the Club.

"...the Carducci String Quartet were stunning...they are clearly musicians of high intelligence."
The Times

"...technical rigour, penetrative musical insight and lively yet unified individualism...winning in every sense of the word."
The Irish Times
