The Arcus Quartet is delighted to be ending their 'Northern Tour' in Skipton's breathtaking Town Hall.

The Arcus Quartet will be performing an exciting and emotionally gripping programme. Beginning with Haydn, String Quartet no. 62 in C major, no 3. ‘Emperor’, Op.76 and Shostakovich String Quartet no. 7 in F sharp minor, Op. 108, written “in memoriam” to his first wife Nina, who’s death deeply affected Shostakovich, reflected in the key of F sharp minor, traditionally associated with pain and suffering. The Quartet will then finish with wonderfully tense and passionate Mendelssohn String Quartet no. 4 in E flat minor, Op. 44/2.
