During that year, they recorded Shostakovich's 'String Quartet No.8 Op.110' and Beethoven's 'String Quartet No.3, Op18'.Collaborations with composers include the UK premier of 'Con Aire de Tango', by award-winning composer and pianist Arturo Cardelus and 'Curved Form' for string quartet, by Alex Groves.
