The Atéa Quintet is the foremost British wind quintet of their generation. Internationally acclaimed, they became double prize winners at the 2015 Karl Nielsen International Chamber Music Competition in Denmark. As the Associate Ensemble in Residence at the Birmingham Conservatoire and former Artists in Residence at the Purcell Music School, they mentor some of the finest up and coming musicians in the country.

Since its formation in 2009, the Atéa Quintet has performed in some of the finest halls in the world. Highlights include a critically acclaimed Friday night recital at the Wigmore Hall, performances at the Cheltenham, Brighton and Lake District Summer Festivals and concerts in St Martin in the Fields, Bridgewater Hall and St Johns Smith Square. Recent seasons have included a tour to Scotland, the Czech Republic, Japan and residencies at the Two Moors Festival and the Drimnin Estate.

Brought together by their communal love of wind chamber music, members of the Atéa Quintet have individually received several prizes in international competitions and played with all of the country’s leading orchestras. As of the summer of 2017 the quintet are now Chamber Music Artists in Residence at Dartington Summer School where they encourage people of all ages to engage in chamber music. The Quintet is eternally grateful for the support that they have received from the Tunnell Trust, Kirckman Concert Society, New Dots, Live Music Now and Coviello Classics whom they have just released our debut CD.
