The Keats Quartet is an outstanding, versatile ensemble, and has been thriving since its formation in 2011, performing in concerts and at events nationwide.
Based in London, Keats has performed at many prestigious occasions including a reception for HRH Duke of Edinburgh at the Cutty Sark, a private dinner for the First Sea Lord and Senior Naval Staff at Admiralty House, and for countless events at venues including The View From The Shard, HMS Belfast and Warwick Castle. The quartet has given many recitals nationally including at the Norwich Chamber Music Festival, Peterborough Cathedral, Glastonbury Abbey, Wells Cathedral; it has made several tours of the Scottish Borders with Borders LIVE Scheme, and performed abroad including in Malta's festival ‘Gaulitanus’ in Gozo.
Keats has recently enjoyed several projects with clarinettist Jonathan Sage, including performing Mozart's Quintet with basset clarinet, and a new commission written for the quintet by Irish composer Garrett Sholdice, Eighteen Cadences. The group has also enjoyed collaborations with composers Stuart Murray Mitchell, Lewis Wolstenholme who wrote them a quartet based on John Keats’ sonnet ‘When I Have Fears’, and with Robert Busiakiewicz, who wrote ‘Three’s a Crowd’ for Keats Trio.
The quartet has worked in collaboration with ensembles such as the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, the Early Music Wells Consort, and has received coaching from Margaret Faultless, Lucy Russell, Michael Bochmann, Ofer Falk, Gina McCormack and members of the Brodsky and Carducci Quartets. Keats has recently been on set filming for a new BBC Drama with Richard Gere, and has been found in studio recording for new artist Jake Isaac and disco/funk band VICE Collective.
