Formed in the bustle of London 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.
The four Alkyonas met in 2018 in the bustle of London. Each member brings something different to this vibrant quartet. So a bit about us. When not music-making: Emma can be found making her own fabulous clothes, Henrietta had a past life in paleontology, Jobine just climbed up to one of Mount Everest’s base camps and Charlotte is completely mad about her beautiful kitten.
