FUNCTIONS AND RESIDENCIES

Using stunningly original arrangements and an eclectic mix of styles, the Marten String Quartet brings high class presentation and a unique charisma to the string repertoire. With a smooth distinctive sound and elegant sophistication they have an innate ability for capturing the exact mood and atmosphere of any occasion and can brilliantly pinpoint music to lift a crowd.

Their repertoire is extensive and ranges from large scale classical works through to 1920’s jazz standards, pop covers and West End show tunes. It is rare that the quartet cannot match a style or request of clients. Placing heavy emphasis on presentation, they portray an image of sophistication, elegance and glamour and this had made the quartet a favourite with pop stars, film stars, charity and fashion show organisers.

RESIDENCIES

The Marten String Quartet have held several prestigious residencies including Harrods, Selfridges and most notably a three year post in the tea room of Claridges’ Hotel, where they built a substantial rapport with guests and were regularly asked to perform at additional events. During this time the quartet began to work for the Savoy group and continue to perform at occasional functions at the Ritz, Dorchester and Grosvenor hotels.

The Marten String Quartet are on the recommended supplier list at The Bingham Hotel, Richmond and The Richmond Hill Hotel where they play regularly and are a favourite amongst wedding clients.
