The Boscobel Quartet - ’Sunshine and Shadows’
Music from the Classical period played on original instruments by
Sophie Barber and Iona Davies - violins
Kate Fawcett - viola
Kinga Gáborjáni - cello
Haydn - String Quartet in C major, op 20 no 2, Hob.III:32
Mozart - String Quartet no 15 in D minor, K421/417b
Schubert - String Quartet no 14 in D minor, 'Death and the Maiden'
From the exuberant warmth of one of Haydn’s celebrated 'Sun' quartets, via the restless turbulence of Mozart’s D minor quartet, to the dark depths of Schubert’s incomparable evocation of Death and the Maiden, the Boscobelles plot the rapid development of the string quartet from its Classical beginnings to the first flowerings of Romanticism.
Come and enjoy a cool afternoon with tea, coffee or soft drinks and chocolate biscuits!
