Eastgate Theatre Twentieth Anniversary Concert  

Music in Peebles  presents Carducci String Quartet    

When the new Eastgate Theatre opened its doors for its first public event on Tuesday 2nd March 2004, it was for a Music in Peebles concert featuring the up-and-coming young stars of the Carducci String Quartet.     

Twenty years on, Music in Peebles is thrilled to be able to present a very special anniversary concert by that same string quartet, now one of the finest in the business. In recognition of the occasion, they will repeat the first half of that inaugural concert but in the second half will play two short pieces by Shostakovich, a composer with whose music they have become closely associated, followed by one of the last, and most profound, pieces Mendelssohn wrote, in which he expresses his grief at the loss of his beloved sister, Fanny.      

“…high-octane playing balanced control with devil-may-care spontaneity…”  (The Guardian)   

   “…their ascent into the league of the world’s major quartets has been phenomenal…”  (Yorkshire Post)
