The Galitzin Quartet are a very successful classical string quartet. The Quartet formed in 2003 when the two founder members Pedro Meireles first violin) and Ken Ichinose (cello) met while studying at the Royal Academy of Music. They have been joined more recently by Owen Cox (second violin) and Ken's younger brother Joe (viola).

The Quartet is named after Prince Nicholas Galitzin of Saint Petersburg, the dedicatee of three of Beethoven’s late Quartets: Op.127, 130 and 132.

They have won several prestigious awards and scholarships and were commissioned by the contemporary English composer, Professor John Ramsay, to record three of his string quartets; he even dedicated his 3rd Quartet in C to them.

Ken and Joe grew up and went to school in Muswell Hill, and are very keen to support the Pinkham Way Alliance.

Their proposed programme for the afternoon is:

Haydn Quartet in G minor, Op.74 no.3 'Rider'
Mendelssohn Quartet in D major, Op.44 no.1
Beethoven Quartet in B flat major, Op. 130 (alternative finale)
