Solaris String Quartet

The quartet’s busy schedule includes appearances at major concert venues throughout Britain and Europe, including regular invitations to perform at London’s South Bank. Film soundtracks, radio and television broadcasts, educational projects and masterclasses form an important part of the quartet’s programme.

Solaris is one of this country’s leading interpreters of Entartete Musik – music banned by the Nazis. Gideon Klein, Hans Krasa and Pavel Haas are among the talented composers from this dark period of history whose music the quartet is helping to keep alive. The quartet works closely with the Imperial War Museum and Beth Shalom National Holocaust Centre to bring performances of this little-heard music to festivals and concert halls throughout the United Kingdom. Solaris was recently invited to play at the German Embassy for an international Holocaust education seminar.

The quartet has recently finished a major collaboration with the Imperial War Museum called In Memoriam – a composition competition for young composers taking inspiration from the exhibition of the same name commemorating the 90th anniversary of the end of the 1st World War.

Solaris is also active in the education field having enjoyed a highly productive residency at the London College of Music, and regularly give workshops to a wide range of students. They have recently successfully launched a music and ICT presentation, Strings n Things, aimed at primary school level.
