Formed in 2018, the Alkyona Quartet present fresh imaginative interpretations of both well-known and hidden gems of the string quartet repertoire.  The quartet also revels in finding and championing scintillating but overlooked works.  They love collaborations across the Arts and are often found presenting both string quartet and collaborative works in more unusual presentations.  They are renowned for their warm connection to audiences and vivacious performances, and are ‘as vibrant and memorable as their ‘Kingfisher’ namesake’.
