The famous Carducci Quartet perform one of the most popular and melodic of Haydn’s quartets, No. 4 from the Op. 20 set with its ravishingly beautiful slow movement and Hungarian-inspired minuet movement, and follow it with Mendelssohn’s passionate and stormy last quartet in F minor.

The Quartet is then joined by the celebrated pianist Reiko Fujisawa in Schumann’s ever-popular Quintet for piano and strings, ‘preludised’ by Liszt’s arrangement of Schumann’s beautiful ‘Widmung’ (‘Dedication’) from the Myrthen song collection.
