The Quartet has produced an arrangement of the film’s quirky soundtrack for string quartet and piano, which they will be performing live at eight screenings across different Picturehouse cinemas during November and December.

They will perform five concerts over the course of the week, including a lunchtime recital as part of the Glasgow Cathedral Festival on Friday 27th September.
On the 2nd May, in the first of a new series, Solem Lates, the Solem Quartet presents 'batózeyal': a night of music for string quartet and electronics.
The Solem Quartet is committed to taking its music to as wide an audience as possible, and especially to young people. Each member of the group is an experienced teacher and as a quartet they have performed and collaborated with young people in many contexts through their regular university visits, workshops and classes with primary and secondary schools and work with the charity ‘Live Music Now’ which provides support to people with special needs.
February 2019 saw the release of a CD on the Nimbus label of music by Richard Blackford, prominently featuring the Solem Quartet. The first work on the disc, Seven Hokusai Miniatures, was written for the quartet in 2018 and is offered among their current programme proposals.
Those who were lucky enough to hear the fabulous Solem Quartet perform at Wigmore Hall last July will remember their sizzling account of Bartók’s Quartet no. 4. Nothing can replace being in the concert hall as a member of the audience, but this video of the fifth movement immediately demonstrates why this award-winning, vibrant string quartet has developed such a strong following. We are also delighted to be able to bring you their recording of the Allegro molto from Beethoven String Quartet in C major, op. 59, no. 3, Razumovsky. Read more

"The Solem String Quartet play with clarity and commitment in the String Quartet"
The fabulous Solem Quartet perform at Wigmore Hall on 16th July, as part of the venue's Monday Platform Series in a concert hosted by the prestigious Park Lane Group.
Please do look out for this award-winning, vibrant string quartet and if you would like to hear them in concert, please see their forthcoming engagements here. Building on their many successes to date, and the high regard in which they are already held, they have a fantastic, long career ahead of them; we are very excited to be able to work with them. The members of the quartet are Amy Tress and William Newell (violins), Alistair Vennart (viola) and Stephanie Tress (cello).
