Carducci String Quartet Series: ‘Inspired by Beethoven’ at Maidment Hall Shrewsbury
In 2017 the charismatic Carducci celebrate their 20th anniversary with a series of concerts in Shropshire that will include three of Beethoven’s string quartet masterpieces, alongside works by composers who were hugely inspired by his genius.
Director of Shropshire Music Trust, Kate Hogwood said: “The Carducci String Quartet will be joined by distinguished guest artists and musical colleagues for some inspiring collaborations which proved so popular last season. The first concert in the series will be by the wonderful pianist Simon Callaghan, who will be taking the audience on a musical journey from Beethoven’s stormy ‘Serioso’ quartet and Shostakovich’s cryptic 11th quartet written in 1966, to Brahms’ epic piano quintet masterpiece. Later concerts feature star-clarinettist Julian Bliss and the well-known actor Crawford Logan in a final unique and illuminating programme event exploring Beethoven and his music. The Carducci will also be working in primary schools"
