YOUR article "String something simple" (12 March) prompts me, as one of the "grey-haired men in tail coats" (but definitely not constipated) to defend the "dusty quartet image".

We have always believed that our public come to hear the music, and so we strive to remove any distractions so that concentration can be focused where it ought to be, not on our "image".

The result: not too many glamorous engagements with "pop" stars but a rewarding life playing the music we love to loyal chamber music lovers.
