The Navarra String Quartet was formed at the Royal Northern College of Music in 2002. Since then the quartet has received a number of awards, including First Prize in the Florence International Competition. The Navarra String Quartet has appeared at major venues throughout the world, including the Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, and international festivals such as Bath, Grachten, Sandviken, Schwetzinger, Rheingau, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Huntingdon (Australia), Aix-en-Provence, and the BBC Proms. Highly acclaimed recordings include Haydn’s The Seven Last Words and a disc of Pēteris Vasks’ first three String Quartets, which they recorded whilst working closely with the composer himself. The recording was described by critics as ‘stunning’, ‘sensational’ and ‘compelling’, and was nominated for the prestigious German Schallplattenkritik Award. Earlier in 2013, the quartet recorded a disc featuring the music of Joseph Phibbs. This year the Navarra String Quartet will launch its own chamber music festival in the town of Weesp, close to Amsterdam.
The festival receives government grants from:Arts Council Norway, City of Bergen and Hordaland county.
