Manchester based, and brim-full with pedigree and wide experience, all four musicians comprising this newly formed quartet have made many appearances at the Festival starring in other ensembles and orchestras.
They all share impressive credentials in solo work, leading orchestras and sections in opera and symphony orchestras, broadcasting and teaching. The breadth of their work and immersion in every aspect of a musician’s life promises performance and perspective of a rare quality.
Their programme goes fittingly to the heart of quartets, all reflecting the respective composer’s maturity, when their mastery of form allowed complete freedom of imaginative expression. This concert promises both music and performances full of inspiration and assurance.
