The Gildas Quartet was formed in 2010 by Masters students at the Royal Northern College of Music.

They are recent winners of a 2013 Tunnell Trust Concert Award and have accumulated numerous other prizes between them including the RNCM’s Weil and Hirsch prizes, most recently being awarded the prestigious Barbirolli Prize for String Quartet.

The Gildas Quartet had the finest appreciation of Haydn’s style, not least his sense of fun.

…a quality string quartet of outstanding musical values and capability.  Ian Stuart-Hunter

… the gifted Gildas Quartet …  Geoff Brown, The Times

They played Haydn in a very stylish manner, with no ‘Emperor’s new clothes’ gimmicky falseness so prevalent these days. How refreshing and sincere they are.   Keith Pascoe, RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet
