The Radcliffe Trust has generously supported chamber music at the Music Faculty for many years. Following a long-standing residency by the Allegri String Quartet, a new scheme came into place in 2011. The Cavaleri Quartet were the first recipient of this competitively recruited 3-year residency. Thanks to the continuing support of the Radcliffe Trust, time has come to choose the next first-class string quartet, who will become a regular visitor to Oxford from November 2015 until February 2018. Come and witness the selection process and enjoy the performances of the shortlisted ensembles. The three quartets will give a 45 minute recital each and interact with Music Faculty staff and students in front of a panel of leading experts. The winning quartet will be announced on the day. Your ticket will include a glass of wine at Wadham College after the competition, where the results will be announced.
