About this Act

In 2013 four like minded individuals got together to form a new classical string quartet and called themselves Konvalia.  These classically trained, professional musicians are; Dorottya Szabados-Drótos (violin I), Marietta Szalóki (viola), Andrea Derdak (cello) and Agata Kubiak (violin II). They are all of European descent and these roots lend a special vigour to their playing.

They are as at home performing modern music as they are classical and jazz standards as film music. They have performed at some of London's popular venues such as Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, The Houses of Parliament, The Polish Jazz Cafe, Hungarian Cultural Centre, Landmark Hotel and played at Ealing Jazz Festival.

Konvalia String Quartet specialises in post romantic and contemporary music and have performend world premieres of pieces by Simon Rigby, Martin Jones, Jon Mapp and others.
