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.

Oscar Osicki is a music graduate of Cambridge and Yale Universities. His music has been played on major networks such as ITV and Yahoo News. He has conducted choirs and orchestras across Europe and the United States, and his online music education platform on YouTube, 'Inside the Score' has an audience of over 250,000 people.
