Britain's oldest chamber group perform at The Apex...
The Allegri Quartet is Britain's oldest chamber group, having celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2014. It has played a key role in the British musical scene, having worked with composers such as Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett, Elizebeth Maconchy, John Woolrich, Anthony Payne, James MacMillan, Matthew Taylor and Alec Roth, and collaborated with new commissions and recordings.
