Praised by audiences for their “spellbinding performances,” the Creation Quartet is an emerging string quartet bringing a youthful and vibrant energy to the stage. Founded by four international friends and colleagues during their studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the quartet trained intensively under the guidance of Rivka Golani and Leon Bosch, and appeared in masterclasses with the Piatti Quartet and Linos Trio.

Since the quartet’s inaugural concert in December 2021, their momentum has taken them across the UK on exciting collaborations with prominent musicians and composers such as Nathen Durasamy, Andrew Bernardi and Malcolm Singer. They also enjoy regularly providing light entertainment and background music at weddings, private parties and events for a range of clients including the Royal Academy of Arts and the Duke of Norfolk at Arundel Castle.

Alongside their performance projects, the quartet has branched out into music education, appearing as guest tutors at the Bernardi Music Group String Academy. The quartet’s name pays tribute to the founding father of the string quartet genre; Franz Joseph Haydn, composer of the well-known work “The Creation”.
