Bacchus Quartet by Andrew Price 

The Bacchus String Quartet was formed in Manchester in 2000.  All four members studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, where they received tuition from many renowned international musicians, both as individuals and as chamber musicians.  As well as playing with the Quartet, the current members are either full time or freelance players with the BBC Philharmonic, the Hallé, Opera North, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. 

The Quartet has always had a reputation for using only the finest musicians in the North West.  Previous members of the Quartet currently hold important chamber and orchestral posts in London, Bournemouth, Los Angeles and Northern Ireland. 

The Bacchus Quartet has performed all over the UK and in 2002 recorded a CD featuring a selection of popular classics.  If you would like to order a CD please use the CONTACT page to submit your details.

As an ensemble, the Bacchus Quartet specialises in light entertainment and background music for weddings and corporate events but also regularly gives formal chamber music concerts, most recently a number of concerts for the Sallow Tree Concerts series in Sale.  The Quartet is also frequently invited to take part in education work, primarily in the performing of GCSE and A-level set works but also in workshops and recordings of student compositions for examination purposes.

As well as giving over a hundred performances a year, the Quartet is also active in the recording studio.  As well as studio and live recordings with a number of popular artists, the Quartet has also recorded library music for EMI and KPM and even soundtracks to video games.  In 2006 the Quartet toured Europe with the band Anathema and appears on their latest DVD, "A Moment in Time".  Forthcoming engagements include further concerts for Sale's new concert series, Sallow Tree Concerts at the Waterside Arts Centre.
