Formed in 1988, the Doric String Quartet ranks as one of the leading quartets of its generation. First-prize winner at the 2008 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan and second-prize winner at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy, the Quartet has been heard on five continents, appears in leading concert halls throughout Europe, and is a regular visitor to Wigmore Hall in London. The Quartet tours annually to the United States and made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2017.

Since 2010 the Quartet has recorded exclusively for Chandos Records. Its 2017 release of Schubert’s Quartettsatz and G-Major Quartet was named Editor’s Choice by Gramophone magazine and nominated for a 2017 Gramophone Award. The Quartet’s ongoing commitment to Haydn has so far seen the release of the complete Op. 20, 33, 64, and 76 quartets. The Doric Quartet’s most recent release of Mozart’s Prussian Quartets (Nos. 21-23) was awarded Editor’s Choice in Gramophone, as well as being praised in BBC Music magazine for its “vivid and insightful interpretations.” 2019 saw the release of the Doric’s benchmark recording of the complete Britten quartets, a release praised in BBC Music magazine for its “extraordinary affinity” with Britten’s music.

The Quartet’s violist, Hélène Clément, plays a Guissani viola from 1843, previously owned by Britten, who was himself an accomplished violist.
