The Archaeus is a well established group, formed in 1990, which has enjoyed a busy schedule from its very first season, performing in music clubs and arts centres throughout the UK, and at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room in London. The group has toured in Europe and played at Festivals including Warwick, Greenwich, King’s Lynn, Wooburn and at the ICA in London. The Archaeus has performed the complete cycle of Beethoven string quartets in a series of six concerts three times: Oxford and Cumbria in 1998, and London in 1999.
