More information about The South Wales String Quartet

Our players are all handpicked professionals with a wealth of playing and recording experience.

We have performed with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Royal Academy Opera Orchestra, English National Ballet, West Of England Philharmonic, Welsh Chamber Orchestra, Sinfonia Cymru, Welsh National Opera and the Jeff Hooper Big Band.

Our players have also worked with many famous artists including Bryn Terfel, Lesley Garret, Charlotte Church, Sian Cothi, Peter Karrie and Ryland Teifi.

All that talent wouldn’t mean a thing however, without great customer service.

From finding that obscure Metallica piece to liaising with the venue on the best place to sit, we’ve got it covered.

Actually, with well over 10 years experience, we’ve played in nearly every venue in South Wales, so we know the people and the spaces and we can help you picture how the quartet can fit into your special day.

It’s been a few years since my wedding, and whilst I couldn’t tell you what kind of flowers we had, the memories of the music are still vivid! Live music really transforms a gathering into an event, leaving a lasting memory for both you, and your guests.

The beauty of a string quartet – four bowed stringed instruments – is that we produce a full sound which can ‘sustain’ the notes, with the acoustic control to be able to play as softly or as strongly as needed. We can also play outdoors (in suitable weather) and our sound will still carry due to the nature of the instruments.

A good string quartet has the versatility to play any style you desire. Several styles convert very well into string quartet arrangements – jazz/swing, heavy metal, pop, ballads, and folk. We can also accompany the guests at churches for the hymn singing.

Over the years, we’ve built up a vast repertoire of music, classical, film and jazz – but primarily, modern, contemporary music. Please see our playlists for an up-to-date list of all we have. If you can’t see what you want, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Many of the arrangements I’ve written myself, some by players, and thanks to the Internet, many are bought from a number of trusted suppliers from across the world.

Where we buy them in, we’ll review for quality, and where they don’t make the cut they’ll be re-worked to meet our high standards.

Please bear in mind, whilst other quartets might have the same music as us, they will often not be to the same standard.
