Based in London but performing Nationally and Internationally, The Hyde Park String Quartet are the ultimate "crossover" quartet, equally at home playing anything from Bach to Mozart, Snow Patrol to Led Zeppelin.

Biography

The Hyde Park String Quartet were founded in 1989. Originally comprised of the four principal string players of the Scarborough Spa Orchestra, the Quartet relocated to London in the early 1990's where they quickly established themselves at the very forefront of corporate and private entertainment.

Each member of The Hyde Park String Quartet has a wealth of experienece. From performing with world renowned symphony orchestras including the London Symphony, the London Philharmoni, the BBC Concert and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, to touring at home and abroad with opera and ballet companies including the English National Ballet, Ballet Rambert and English Touring Opera.

The Hyde Park String Quartet have recorded and performed around the world with many of music's biggest names including classical performers Russell Watson, Katherine Jenkins, Andrea Bocelli and Vanessa Mae and pop superstars such as Robbie Williams, Snow Patrol, Muse, Take That, Shirley Bassey, Dizzy Rascal, Paul McCartney & most recently George Michael.

The Hyde Park String Quartet have made several TV appearances most recently including QVC and Channel 4 at the Races. At the 2003 opening of Andrew Lloyd Webber's collection of Pre-Raphaelites at the Royal Academy of Arts, the BBC Arts Correspondent, Rosie Millard, was so taken with the quartet that she began her 10 o'clock News report with their performance of Stairway to Heaven.

The Hyde Park String Quartet have performed at over one thousand weddings in their eighteen-year history. They have the experience and expertise to provide for so important an event. They truly understand that this is your special day and that the perfect music will add that finishing touch and create a magical atmosphere. In recent times they have performed at numerous celebrity weddings including England footballer David James, as well as one of the members of Coldplay.

The Hyde Park String Quartet also perform extensively at corporate events and private parties. Performances include the UK premiere of the Hollywood movie The Duchess, the re-launches of O2 and Audos and Men’s Health magazine's search for a new cover model.

The Hyde Park String Quartet also perform beautiful recitals. The quartet delight in presenting a traditional-style first half, in formal concert attire with works by the classical masters followed by a second half where the quartet slip into something a little more comfortable and encourage the audience to sit back and listen to music in a lighter vein. The second half programmes often take on a theme such as songs from the shows, songs from the movies or the 20th century remembered featuring songs from music hall to the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Of course, The Hyde Park String Quartet can also provide a full classical recital, having done so on a number of occasions when requested.

Whether it's a wedding, a corporate function, a private event or even a product launch, The Hyde Park String Quartet can perform a wide range of styles and genres.

Testimonials

"Banish all previous conceptions of a string quartet from your mind - The Hyde Park String Quartet are definitely different. They gave us a brilliant classical first half programme then a fun-packed romp through the 20th Century in the second half. It was a pleasure having them with us and their performance was thoroughly enjoyed by our audience of over 800 members."

Clacton & North East Essex Arts & Literary Society.

"May I also take this opportunity to thank you and your group for providing us with such a lift to our programming and for remaining in such good humour for the many hours you were with us, it certainly brought some festive joy to the offices."

QVC.

"Thank you so much for your fabulous performance at our wedding on New Year's Eve. We were over the moon with Heroes, and the sheet music you gave us was a wonderful surprise. Thank you for being a part of our amazing day."

Wedding, Penshurst Place.

"Everything went really well and the string quartet did a super job for us - they were really flexible (some of the timings changed on the day but they handled it really well) and I had loads of positive feedback from people about them. So thanks for making our VIP opening event such a huge success."

Roche UK.

"Wow! What can I say apart from thank you so much for playing at our wedding? You were absolutely amazing and we could not have chosen anyone better to play for us. It truly was breathtaking when I heard the first bars of Pachelbel as I entered the church. That was my favourite part of the day and it is all thanks to you. All our family and friends said how wonderful you all were and that the choices of music played were brilliant. One thing I do remember is my brother and I singing and dancing on the terrace while you were playing I Heard It on the Grapevine. You made our day even more of a fairytale for us and we cannot thank you enough - you really were amazing."

Carly & Oliver Evans.
