Since its formation in 2009, the Atéa Quintet has performed in some of the finest halls in Read more the world. Highlights include a critically acclaimed Friday night recital at the Wigmore Hall, performances at the Cheltenham, Brighton and Lake District Summer Festivals and concerts in St. Martin in the Fields, Bridgewater Hall and St. Johns Smith Square.
