The quartet has received acclaim internationally for its informed, polished, and passionate performances and has established themselves as one of the leading chamber ensembles of their generation. The quartet is the Grand-Prize winner of the 2016 and inaugural M-Prize Chamber Music Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world.
