Formed in 1974 by students at the Royal Academy of Music under the guidance of renowned quartet leader, Sidney Griller, they rapidly achieved national recognition, and were appointed Quartet-in-Residence by the University of Warwick in 1977, a post which they held for over forty years. The Quartet, which includes two of its founder members, has performed and broadcast extensively throughout the UK, and has made tours of Western Europe, the Americas, Australia, China, India and the Far East.
The Coull Quartet has made over 30 recordings featuring a wide selection of the repertoire closest to their hearts, from the complete Mendelssohn and Schubert quartets to 20th century and contemporary British chamber music. These have received universal acclaim, some being picked out as ‘Editor’s Choice’ in The Gramophone and as the ‘Benchmark Recording’ by BBC Music Magazine. Their impressive and wide-ranging list of commissions includes works by most leading composers.
The Coull Quartet enjoy a special relationship with the Channel Islands, especially with Guernsey through their many appearances over the years and their involvement with the Guernsey Symphony Orchestra and Elizabeth College Summer Orchestral Course. They even performed in St James before its restoration as a concert hall to demonstrate to States Deputies its highly rated acoustic qualities. Thank you Coull Quartet!
