The Doric String Quartet was founded in 1998 at Pro Corda in England, one of Europe’s leading organizations for the training of young musicians. In short order, the Quartet began receiving glowing responses from audiences and critics around the world. It was described by Gramophone magazine as “one of the finest young string quartets”, whose members are “musicians with fascinating things to say”. In 2006, the Quartet won first prize at the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, and in 2008 the second prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy, and the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany. In 2009 the Doric String Quartet’s first CD was released to critical acclaim on the Wigmore Live Label and was an Editor’s Choice in Gramophone, which noted that “the Doric’s Haydn sparkles with wit on their impressive [and] very auspicious recording debut”. Since 2010 the Quartet has recorded exclusively for Chandos Records. Their CD of the complete Korngold quartets was released in September 2010 and became one of the 2010 Critic’s Choice discs in Gramophone. Their latest investigations have led them to the music of Australian composer Brett Dean. In September of 2015 they became the Teaching Quartet in Association at the Royal Academy of Music, London.
