The Solem Quartet (Amy Tress, William Newell, Stephanie Tress, Stephen Upshaw) is launching a new series of concerts in Camberwell bringing together the late quartets of Beethoven and the six quartets of Béla Bartók, alongside music from composers of today. Beethoven Bartók Now will also see a wealth of digital content and educational activity, providing a rich resource for a network of composers and an access point for new audiences.

The series takes place at St Giles' Church, Camberwell, SE8 8RB and the first concert on 17 December 2020, Night Music will feature Beethoven's Quartet no. 13 op. 130, Bartok's Quartet no. 5 (which has two slow movements, each superb examples of the composer's night music style) and a new work by Aaron Parker, batózeyal. Parker studied composition at the Royal Northern College of Music, and did a Masters in Experimental Music at Brunel University.

The quartet is running a series of free on-line workshops for composers, you can sign up for the first one on 28 January 2021 at EventBrite. Writing for Quartet is aimed at composers of all ages, levels and backgrounds, and will be delivered via Zoom.

The quartet is also planning a call for scores which will result in a performance for the chosen work during 2021.
