Albion String Quartet

Hosted by the LSE Arts Lunchtime Concert Series

Shaw Library, 6th Floor, Old Building

Formed in 2016, the Albion Quartet brings together four of the UK’s exceptional young string players who are establishing themselves rapidly on the international stage.

Along with numerous broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, the quartet have performed at the Wigmore Hall and Aldeburgh Festival, and held residencies at Sainte-Mere Festival in France and RWCMD in Cardiff.

The Albion String Quartet consists of Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Emma Parker on violin, Rosalind Ventris on viola and Nathaniel Boyd on cello.

Walton                           String Quartet no.2 in A minor

Freya Waley-Cohen     ‘Snapdragon’

The next lunchtime concert will be on Thursday 31 October performed by Eleftheria Kotzia (guitar).

LSE’s Christmas Concert which will include performances by the LSE Choir and Orchestra, takes place on 12 December in the beautiful surroundings of St Clement Danes. Tickets will be available to purchase from the LSE online store soon.

Just economics and politics? Think again. While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts and Music website.
