Type: Classical Group
Introducing The Edinburgh Quartet: (formerly Cantabile)
four dedicated musicians (violin, violin, viola and cello) of professional standard who perform regularly in the Southern Sinfonia.
We provide elegant background music to enhance the atmosphere of any private or business function. We are happy to play for weddings (both during the service and at the reception), conferences, meetings, dinners, official functions and end of year functions.
The Quartet covers a wide repertoire from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, through the famous popular quartets of the Classic and Romantic periods to Vienese Waltzes, Gershwin and Cole Porter.
Ideal For: classical background music for wedding service and reception, house party, garden party, product release, background situations
Our repertoire includes favourite classical works such as:
Albinoni: Adagio in G minor
Bach: Air on the G String (excellent for signing the register)
Bach: Dances from orchestral suites 1-10 (good for the close of the service)
Beethoven: Arrangement of part of the 9th Symphony (Choral)
Elgar: Salut D'Amour
Grieg: Morning from the Peer Gynt suite
Handel: Excerpts from The Messiah
Handel: Water Music (good for the close of the service)
Mendelssohn: Wedding March (Good for the bride’s entrance)
Mozart: Divertimenti nos 137, 138, 136
Mozart: Eine Kleine Nachtsmusik
Pachelbel: Canon in D (good for the bride’s entrance)
Respighi: Airs and Dances
Vivaldi: Excerpts from The Four Seasons
Wagner: ‘Here Comes the Bride’
In addition to the classics, we can play lighter music by such composers as Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Lloyd Webber and Gilbert and Sullivan, if requested.
We are able to cater for other specific musical requirements by arrangement. If it is necessary to arrange the music for a quartet there will be an additional fee (minimum $100 for a simple score).
Everything was great, the band did a really good job. Please pass on our thanks to them.
Could you please pass on our thanks to Mary Jane and the rest of the Quartet for Saturday evening. It was just what we wanted and they were excellent.
Everything went well and the quartet was lovely - had so many positive comments!
