They have won awards from organisations such as the Tillett Trust, the Park Lane Group, the Hattori Foundation, the Matin Musical Scholarship Fund, and the Worshipful Company of Musicians. They have held fellowships at both the Royal Academy of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and their mentors include Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Gunter Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet), and the Belcea Quartet. The quartet has performed widely throughout the UK in venues such as the Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room. Steinway Artist Simon Callaghan performs internationally as a soloist and chamber musician. His recent tours have taken him to Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and on two occasions to the Banff Centre in Canada. He has performed at all of the UK's major concert halls including Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and St David's Hall Cardiff. His interest in rarely-performed works has led to invitations to perform concerti by Francaix, Tippett and the first UK performance since 1946 of Medtner's 3rd Concerto. His rapidly-expanding discography includes solo works by Sterndale Bennett, Parry, Sacheverell Coke and two volumes of Delius with Parnassius Duo partner, Hiro Takenouchi, on the SOMM record label. In 2017 he will release his debut concerto recording for Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series: the first recordings of Roger Sacheverell Coke's Concerti with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins.
