The Dante Quartet, one of the UK’s finest ensembles, is known for its imaginative programming and impassioned performances. The Quartet has been honoured with the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Chamber Music.
The Dante Quartet collaborated with playwright Clare Norburn on a dramatized version of Beethoven’s quartet cycle, featuring an actor as the composer. This innovative format has proved popular, and “Beethoven’s Quartet Journey” has had many performances.
Kevin West’s career has principally been that of a singing actor, but he has fulfilled a number of engagements purely as an actor and narrator.
