In 2016 they took home a Royal Philharmonic Society Award for their performances of cycles of the complete Shostakovich Quartets and their Naxos recordings of Philip Glass Quartets have had over seven million plays on Spotify. They are, collectively, the Head of Strings teaching at Dean Close School.
