The Medical Music Society of London (formerly the RSM Music Society) is delighted to welcome back the Iuventus Quartet following their highly successful and enjoyable concert at the RSM in 2008. Now known as the Iuventus Ensemble, for this concert they are joined by clarinetist Thomas Hull in Mozart's clarinet quintet.

The Iuventus Quartet has been hailed be the Irish Times as “startling”: "theirs was a purely musical approach – bracing, fearless and utterly engaging." The Strad wrote of their “technical ease, sensitivity to style, elegance in phrasing and excellent intonation” and hailed their playing as "powerfully communicated”. In another review, the Iuventus were described as “spellbinding”, bringing to the music “great expertise, dedication and superb musicianship”.

In 2008 the quartet performed in Jakarta, Indonesia and Bangkok, Thailand and went on to give workshops to Burmese orphans in the refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border. They have decided to expand into the Iuventus Ensemble to allow for more imaginative programming, and greater flexibility of repertoire and collaboration with other players.

“When a young string quartet combines passion, exquisite warmth of tone and - when necessary - unbridled attack, you know you’re in the presence of something very special indeed.” Stratford Herald
