Now into its third decade, the Smith Quartet remains at the leading edge of the new music world. A champion of the works of the world’s most celebrated composers, commissioning over 200 new pieces with recent works from Michael Nyman, Kevin Volans, Joe Cutler, Donnacha Dennehy, Tunde Jegede, Gabriel Prokofiev and the late Jon Lord. In 2015 the quartet gave the world premiere of Graham Fitkin’s new work Distil at the Cheltenham Festival as part of a collaborative project with percussionist Joby Burgess. The work went on to receive the RPS chamber music prize for best chamber composition. The group has not only collaborated with eminent classical musicians such as Burgess, pianist John Tilbury and guitarist David Tanenbaum but also with a diverse array of artists from other disciplines including rock group Pulp, Malian singer Rokia Traoré, jazz musicians John Taylor and Django Bates and dance companies Shobana Jeyasingh, Siobhan Davies and Ultima Vez.
The Smiths continued its long established collaboration with Shobana Jeyasingh Dance in 2017 with a UK tour of Material Men redux, a new full length version of the original production that premiered to rave reviews at the QEH, London 2015. The production had its Italian premiere in the stunning Teatro Alighierias part of the 2017 Ravenna Festival. The quartet also appeared at the historic Chiostro della Biblioteca Classense, performing an all British programme featuring Steve Martland’s Patrol and Michael Nyman’s 5th Quartet.
