The Laefer Quartet

Join the Royal College of Music’s Laefer Quartet for a unique concert inspired by the ‘Abstract Expressionism’ exhibition.

A dynamic group of musicians, the Laefer Quartet was selected as Park Lane Group Artists for the 2016/17 series. Formed in 2012 at the Royal College of Music, it was awarded the 2014 Boconnoc Music Award and has since been performing across the UK at numerous venues including the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room and The Forge in Camden. The quartet is experienced in a variety of genres but specialises in performing contemporary classical music and transcriptions of works by classical composers.

In this concert, the Laefer Quartet will present a programme of music, including a new composition by an RCM composer, inspired by the Abstract Expressionism exhibition.

Laefer Quartet
Kyle Horch (soprano saxophone), Rusne Mikiskaite (alto saxophone), Philip Attard (tenor saxophone), Stephen Shepherd (baritone saxophone).
