The Primrose Piano Quartet was formed in 2004 by pianist John Thwaites and three of the UK's most renowned chamber musicians. Alongside their performances of the major repertoire, the Primrose Quartet have researched widely the forgotten legacy of 20th century English composers, and have revived a number of remarkable and unjustly neglected piano quartets. Their award-winning recordings include favourites such as Brahms's G minor and British repertoire featuring major commissions from Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Anthony Payne. The Quartet enjoy a busy performing schedule throughout the UK and abroad with recent tours taking them to Denmark, Germany and Bulgaria in addition to regular appearances at London's Kings Place, Wigmore and Conway Halls. Their own festival in the Hampshire village of West Meon is now in its sixth year, and they were appointed ensemble-in-residence at the Battle Festival in 2016. Their programme includes piano quartets by Beethoven Op.16, Faure in G minor and Brahms in G minor.
