DESCRIPTION:

One of the world’s finest quartets plays a fascinating and wide-ranging programme.

Krysia Osostowicz & Ian Belton (violins)

Paul Cassidy (viola),  Jacqueline Thomas (cello)

Borodin                            Scherzo in D for String Quartet

Schubert                          String Quartet No. 13 in A minor (“Rosamunde”), D.804, Op.29

James MacMillan         ‘For Sonny’ and ‘Memento’

Shostakovich                 String Quartet No.9 in E flat, Op.117

The Brodsky Quartet, widely regarded as one of the world’s finest, is making an eagerly awaited return to Peebles.

Their programme opens with an energetic scherzo by Borodin, which he later orchestrated for inclusion in his unfinished Third Symphony. This is followed by Schubert’s ever-popular ‘Rosamunde’ Quartet, full of the composer’s characteristic lyricism yet tinged with the despondency he felt due to his failing health.

After two miniatures by James MacMillan, the concert ends with Shostakovich’s enigmatic 9th quartet. Although often regarded as one of his more exuberant, there are also moments of darkness as well as of contentment before the exhilarating tour-de-force of a finale.

Don’t miss the chance to hear this great quartet in a fascinating and wide-ranging programme.

“The finest playing I’ve heard in a long time; fiercely focused, blazing with integrity and brilliantly imagined.”  (The Telegraph)
