The Chagall Piano Quartet are an exciting young chamber group based in London, dedicated to exploring the rich and varied repertoire available for this instrumentation. Praised for their 'imaginative and demanding' programmes, they combine well-known works with rarely performed gems. The Quartet are becoming known for their sharp attention to detail and energetic, lyrical interpretations.
Having begun collaborating in 2011, the group have worked closely with many outstanding coaches including members of the Belcea Quartet, Matthew Jones, David Dolan, Caroline Palmer and Melissa Phelps. The quartet were finalists in the 2015 St. Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition, and are also recipients of the Ivan Sutton Chamber Music Award. They have performed at venues including Sophie's Barn, St. Martin-in-the-Fields and Wigmore Hall and have given concerts at the City of London Music Festival and for concert societies including the Blenheim Music Circle and Ripley Recitals.Members Katarzyna Ziminska (violin), Emily Hester (viola), Alice Purton (cello) and Ian Tindale (piano) are all individually much in demand as chamber musicians appearing in concert halls across Europe and America. As individual performers they are engaged in a wide variety of creative work, including classical improvisation, orchestral playing, jazz and folk performance, song recitals, historical performance and experimental contemporary music. Notable individual appearances include the Musikverein, Vienna; the Mozarteum, Salzburg; UNESCO Hall, Paris; Lutoslawski Concert Hall, Warsaw; the Grand Theatre, Luxembourg; and major London venues including the Barbican Hall, Royal Festival Hall and Buckingham Palace.
