I've been playing quartets in Jersey since the founding of "Capriccio" when I was fourteen and since returning to the Island have been playing professionally with No Strings Attached on various occasions, as well as making up a string trio with Emmanuelle Dumas ('cello) and Mariella Wildbur (viola). Most requests are for weddings or wedding receptions, but we are happy to perform for other functions and have been known to play in restaurants etc. simply to create a high-class ambience.
We play all the standard classics, e.g. Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Pachelbel's Canon, The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (frequently requested for weddings) plus more modern arrangements and lighter music suitable for receptions.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss hiring the quartet as quotes may vary. Bear in mind that you are paying four musicians for our many hours of practice, plus a small fee towards purchase of sheet music and administrative costs. Wedding fees are in the region of £400 for an hour, which also includes the equivalent of royalty fees for reproduction of our performance in your videos. Bookings are dependent on other players being available, but we will endeavour to do our best and, though the line-up may vary, the quality is always assured.
