“A string quartet of young talented and busy musicians who play from a plucky repertoire…we are lucky to catch them to perform”
-Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution

"I wanted to thank you and the rest of the Beans for performing so beautifully at our wedding. My only disappointment is that I didnt hear more of your playing as I was so late! But what I heard was beautiful and the Brandenburg was absolutely perfect for what we wanted during the signing of the registers."
