The Chilingirian Quartet is one of the world’s most celebrated and widely travelled ensembles renowned for their thrilling interpretations of the great quartets and commanding performances of the contemporary repertoire.
The Quartet was founded in 1971 by Levon Chilingirian and Philip De Groote. Whilst each member is a virtuoso musician, their success as a quartet has earned them the Royal Philharmonic Society’s coveted Chamber Ensemble Award. The Chilingirian is Quartet-in- Residence at the Royal College of Music in London, resident ensemble at the Lake District Summer Music Festival and in 2005 has a residency at the University of California at Irvine. Places on the Chilingirian’s annual chamber music course run at West Dean in England are eagerly sought by aspiring young professional and amateur ensembles.
