repertoire

As a string quartet, naturally we play a lot of “classical” music – Bach, Mozart, Handel – the famous composers of the past whose music everyone has come to know and love. While the classical choice is very popular for weddings, four strings has a wide range of repertoire which encompasses music from the 1600s until the present day.

Browse the lists below, and click on the play buttons to hear our quartet playing.

If you have a special request for a song or piece of music which isn’t on our list, please email us. We’ll do our best to help you!

If you’d like to hear a piece of music we haven’t yet recorded, a quick search on youtube.com will give you an idea of what it sounds like.
