The D'Aranyi String Quartet, a group of professional Oxford-based musicians, provides a range of classical and light music for occasions such as weddings, receptions, dinners, corporate functions, conferences and parties.
About the Quartet
The Quartet was set up some twenty years ago and is named after the famous Hungarian violinist sisters, Adila and Jelly D'Aranyi, who in the 1940s built Garden House in the Oxfordshire village of Ewelme. A founder member of the Quartet later bought Garden House, and the Quartet often rehearsed in the large living room used by the D'Aranyi sisters for chamber music soirÃ©es.
The Quartet's players are Mariette Richter and Judith Ellis, violins, Vanessa Murby, viola and Valerie Findlay, cello, who are all experienced performers much in demand as orchestral and chamber musicians. Members of the Quartet have played in the English Chamber Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, the Orchestra of The Swan, Sadlers' Wells Orchestra, the English Sinfonia, and the Scottish National Orchestra.
