Programme Notes

In this concert, the performers take the audience on a compelling musical journey. It begins in the idyllic countryside conjured by the hunting horn themes and radiant melodies of Mozart’s Hunt quartet. It strides across the new world of Dvořák’s American quartet with energy and excitement. It scales the majestic peaks of Schubert’s quintet to reveal an emotional landscape of intense beauty and power. 

Detailed programme notes for each work will be available closer to the concert date.
