The Carduccis are described by The Strad as presenting “a masterclass in unanimity of musical purpose, in which severity could melt seamlessly into charm, and drama into geniality”.

Simon Callaghan performs internationally as a soloist and chamber musician, in parallel with a highly successful career as a recording artist.

The award-winning quartet is internationally acclaimed as one of the most accomplished and versatile ensembles of today. Not only mastering the core repertoire, the quartet presents a selection of new works each season and diversifies further with programmes of film music, pop and rock.

'...The Carducci Quartet played a blinder at the Wigmore Hall...playing of vivacity and constant rhythmic subtlety...' The Strad

'Callaghan... is spry, vivid and full of optimistic romance and is clearly the superior technician...These are strong works in their own right and deserve a good hearing and in Callaghan’s expert performances that is precisely what they receive..' MusicWeb International
