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 love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
