Since its formation in 1982, the Salomon String Quartet has established its position as one of the world's leading ensembles specialising in the historical performance of the Classical string quartet repertoire. It has toured extensively in Europe, the USA, the Far East and Australia as well as making regular appearances at British music societies and festivals and has made many radio broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and on European radio stations. The Quartet records regularly and is recording all the string quartets of Haydn. In addition to the music of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, which forms the basis of its repertoire, the Salomon String Quartet has always been committed to the exploration and performance of the wealth of quartet music written by the contemporaries of these great composers, including Boccherini, Pleyel, Dittersdorf and Hummel as well as English, French and Bohemian music of the time.
