The Vogler Quartet, still featuring the four original members, was founded in 1985. In the 29 years since its foundation, it has secured a place for itself among the top chamber music ensembles, thanks to its great individual and joint skills, and has been a guest on nearly all the world's major concert platforms. It was the quartet's sensational success at the 1986 string quartet competition in Evian, France, where they won several prizes, that set the four musicians on the path to a great international career. The Vogler Quartet's repertoire covers both the classical works for string quartet from Haydn to Bartók and the Second Viennese School, as well as lesser-known and brand-new works, giving them an unusual range. Modern compositions have been written for them by Ian Wilson, Gerald Barry, Frank Michael Beyer, Jörg Widmann, Mauricio Kagel, Erhard Grosskopf and others. The Quartet's versatility and openness is also reflected in their regular cooperation with other well-known musicians, where their spectrum ranges from a quintet featuring a piano, clarinet, viola or cello, to works scored for an octet.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back.
