‘Exceptionally talented’ BBC Music Magazine
‘A dream of a string ensemble’ Desmond Carrington, BBC Radio 2
The Pavão Quartet’s impressive 16-year journey has so far included a Grammy Award, 5-star reviews, worldwide radio play, Classical no.1s, Royalty, Rock stars, and taken them to both the Wigmore Hall and the Wailing Wall.
The Pavão formed in 1998 at the Royal Academy of Music, where they won many prizes individually and as an ensemble, culminating in their appointment as Chamber Music Fellows for two years. Classical recitals delightfully increased their knowledge of the highways and byways of the British Isles, besides taking them to the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Symphony Hall in Birmingham, Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, Gateshead’s Sage and Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall. In addition to an intensive UK schedule, their concert tours have also given them opportunities to observe the skyscrapers of New York and the Great Wall of China, the Arabian desert and Jerusalem’s ‘Wailing Wall’, and an arc of European cities from Lisbon to Warsaw.
