Daniel Rowland and Maja Bogdanovic will be broadcast live on Dutch national radio station NPO 4 today.
From the quartet: "Drumroll please ... we are really happy to announce that Stephen Upshaw has joined the quartet as our new violist! Some of you have already met and heard Stephen, but for those that haven’t – you can find out lots more about him here. Stephen is a brilliant musician who we have loved working with in the last couple of months, and performs regularly as a soloist and chamber musician around the UK, Europe and North America. Alongside a love of chamber music, Stephen has a particular interest in contemporary music, being a member of Riot Ensemble (whose recent disc “Speak Be Silent” was selected as one of The New Yorker Magazine’s best of 2019). Keep your eyes peeled for some sparkly new photos of the four of us coming soon! With welcoming Stephen, we of course have to say goodbye to Ali (our beloved violist of 9 years!) who is now focusing on a career newly balanced towards performing, arranging and teaching in Manchester. As a founding member of the quartet we are all indebted to Ali and will miss him - but we look forward to seeing his future career flourish! "
