Over the last year they have enjoyed exciting collaboration projects with Austrian pianist Gottlieb Wallisch and clarinettists Emma Johnson and Sarah Williamson as well as a successful second year of their own Piatti Chamber Music Festival at Kingsand. The Quartet made their Wigmore Hall debut in February 2011 and returned for a second very successful concert there in April 2012.
"The prize for poise, blended tone and general lustre was ultimately won by the Piatti String Quartet".
