The Vilaseca Quartet is set to make its mark in their debut appearance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August. Each afternoon the string quartet, made up of four top students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, will perform classical pieces ranging from Shostakovich to Schubert.
Phillip Granell (Violin I), Daniel Gea (Violin II), Jodi Morell (Viola) and Austen Scully (Violoncello), will also play a selection of solo performances. The performances have been arranged by Trinity College London.
The quartet members boast a range of achievements, including recording for film and television, being finalists in the Britten Intercollegiate String Quartet Competition and performing all over the world with esteemed orchestras. The quartet receives regular coaching from esteemed musicians and Trinity Laban teaching staff such as Rivka Golani, Naomi Butterworth, Michael Bochmann, Ofer Falk, David Brodowski and David Kennedy.
Austen, also currently the principal cellist in the Royal Orchestral Society, said: "We are delighted to be performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. This is a great opportunity for us as performers, and we can't wait to showcase our musical skills at our debut Fringe performance."
The Vilaseca Quartet will be performing in Blackwell's Bookshop (Venue 133) from 8-10 August at 2.30pm. For further information or to book tickets visit www.trinitycollege.co.uk/fringe.
