The Coull Quartet Welcomes a New Member

The Coull Quartet (Photography - Chris Redgrave)The Coull Quartet, the University’s Quartet-in-Residence, welcomes Rose Redgrave as their new viola player.

Rose brings a wealth of experience in contemporary and period performance to the Quartet, having performed with ensembles such as Chroma, Lontano, Sound Collective and the Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romantique. As a former member of the Luventus Quartet, she is greatly looking forward to immersing herself in the string quartet repertoire once more.

After six very productive years with Gustav Clarkson the Quartet is looking forward to a busy schedule with Rose, including a new commission from Sally Beamish as part of their ‘Beyond the Lyric’ collaboration with former CAPITAL Centre Fellow in Creativity Fiona Sampson, piano quintets with pianists Martin Roscoe, Clélia Iruzun and Mark Bebbington, more ‘tavern’ concerts, and the release of two new CDs.

The Coull Quartet

Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Warwick since 1977, the Coull Quartet has performed and broadcast extensively throughout the UK, the USA and Western Europe, and has also toured China, India, the Far East, South America and Australia.

In the UK the Quartet has appeared at most of the major music societies and festivals, and is frequently invited to take part in P&O Cruises' ‘Music Festivals at Sea’. The Quartet is truly embedded in University life, giving an annual series of concerts at the Arts Centre, as well as many other performances around campus, and teaching many promising string players and chamber ensembles.
