About


Manchester Flute Quartet are a quartet based in Manchester, comprising of Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello.

Formed from musicians associated with the Hallé Orchestra either as past or present members, the ensemble provides light classical music - from 18th century masterpieces to Viennese waltzes and also arrangements of Broadway and film favourites - for all types of special occasions from weddings, parties and balls through to corporate dinners and conferences either in the form of background music during the event or as a special concert providing a highlight in the proceedings.

    FAQs

    Is your group a string quartet? 
    No, but the music we play is virtually identical. The flute replaces one of the two violinists that normally make up a string quartet. Flute quartets were very popular in the late 18th/early 19th centuries and Mozart, Haydn and J.C. Bach all wrote specifically for the ensemble.

    Do you play requests? 
    We will play requests if we are given sufficient notice prior to the booking (3 - 4 weeks). If we can find the request already arranged for quartet we will play it or, if an arrangement doesn't exist, one of our members can make a bespoke arrangement for an agreed fee. We do not play requests on the day of the booking.
