The Florian Quartet is a dedicated and flexible ensemble, made up of four musicians who love playing together.

Based in London and Manchester, the Florians share their passion for this amazing genre in lots of different ways beyond conventional concert performances. Current projects include living room gigs, innovative education work, collaborative and crossover projects, and cutting-edge academic research in performance. Drawing on a sophisticated attitude to unity and diversity, the quartet explores the myriad ways in which music can move, delight and surprise the people who hear it.

The quartet's members trained at some of the UK's most prestigious conservatoires and universities - including the Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music, Oxford and Birmingham Universities. The group has benefited from the guidance of many inspirational teachers, but are especially indebted to Catherine Manson, James Boyd and Laurence Dreyfus.
