Beethoven - String Quartet in C minor Op.18 No.4
Fanny Mendelssohn - String Quartet in E flat
Schubert - String Quartet No.13 in A minor D.804 Rosamunde

The Chiaroscuro Quartet present contrasting masterpieces from the string quartet repertoire. Beethoven’s Quartet in C minor is a powerful and urgent piece, full of dramatic intensity, while a profound melancholy pervades Schubert’s lyrical Rosamunde. In this concert the quartet will also be championing the music of Fanny Mendelssohn, whose Quartet in E flat reveals a composer of immense imagination and the very highest technical ability.

“The playing is intense and refined, exploratory and poised. This is real chamber music.” The Guardian

All ticket holders are invited to stay on for an informal Q&A session with the musicians after the concert.
