Footnote in 2013. The Linden Piano Quartet has disbanded. Current information on two of the players:

Joshua Fisher. Presented on BBC Radio Three as a winner of the Young Artist Forum in 1994, Joshua Fisher has since appeared in the major concert halls throughout the UK. He has performed the violin solo in Schnittke’s Concerto Grosso No.4 in the Royal Festival Hall, as well as Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra at St John‘s Smith Square. He has also given concerts as violin/director and soloist with the Northern Sinfonia and toured Italy, Spain and France performing concertos and chamber music recitals.
Joshua has broadcast live on Classic FM, Gibraltar Radio & Television and BBC Radio Three. He has also appeared in recitals and concertos with Rodney Friend and Vasco Vasilev and led orchestras under the batons of Lord Menuhin and Mstislav Rostropovich.

Joshua studied with Felix Andrievsky and Rodney Friend at the Royal College of Music and graduated with a DipRCM Performers First Class. He was a recipient of many prizes and nominated awards, and as a postgraduate received generous financial assistance from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, performing numerous concertos and recitals as part of their concert scheme.

Sebastian Millett enjoys a fine reputation as a concert cellist. His talent was recognized at the Royal College of Music where he won one of the most prestigious competitions, the Anthony Saltmarsh Prize. Consequently he gained a scholarship enabling him to continue his studies with the internationally renowned cellist, Eileen Croxford.

His busy schedule includes solo broadcasts, recitals and concertos across the UK and Europe. A memorable occasion was a performance of chamber works with Mitislav Rostropovich in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and also a recital for the British Embassy in Berlin. In addition to his solo career, Sebastian is a frequent guest artist with chamber groups such as the Bingham String Quartet and, when time permits, enjoys playing and touring with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
