Carducci String Quartet

  • Mendelssohn: String Quartet op.80
  • Shostakovich: String Quartet no.4
  • Beethoven: String Quartet op.132

The celebrated 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society Award winners bring quartet playing of the highest order as they return for our 70th anniversary concert.

Carducci String Quartet

  • Beethoven String Quartet op.95
  • Glass String Quartet no.3
  • Beethoven String Quartet op.132

We enjoyed a marvellous evening with this Quartet recently; you may recall the Shostakovich quartet and indeed their Royal Philharmonic Award was for their season long concerts of the entire Shostakovich 15.

I invited them to return as soon as possible, having been enthralled by their performance so we can look forward to a pair of concerts just a few months apart. Both concerts will feature Beethoven whose entire Quartet works are part of their work during 2017.

Carducci String Quartet

Wednesday 21 October

  • Haydn Quartet in E flat, Op. 33 No. 2, Hob. III:38 “Joke”
  • Shostakovich Quartet no.4
  • Beethoven Quartet No. 4 in C minor, Op. 18 No. 4

String quartets improve over time – they can develop over years or decades whereas this may be less significant with smaller ensembles.

The Carduccis have been together for a long time now and their reputation is considerable. I am confident that we shall have a concert to match the wonderful evening supplied by the Piatti Quartet last season.
