The Esposito Quartet comprises four musicians with a combined bounty of experience as orchestra leaders, principals, professors, recital and recording artists, whose common love of the quartet treasury drove them in 2010 to ignore it no longer and seek each other out. Their name reflects their admiration for Michele Esposito, pianist and composer, who for forty years from 1888 was the initiator for much of the chamber music making in Dublin through the establishment of The Royal Dublin Society. They have enjoyed recent concerts in Newry, Killaloe and Dublin, will appear in the Castleconnell concert series 2015 and have plans in 2016 to record Esposito's quartet alongside works of his continental contemporaries.
