Description

Chiaroscuro Quartet
Tuesday 04 July 2017
6.15pm drinks reception | 7pm recital
Conway Hall, London

Formed in 2005, the Chiaroscuro Quartet comprises violinists Alina Ibragimova (Russia) and Pablo Hernán Benedí (Spain), the Swedish violist Emilie Hörnlund and cellist Claire Thirion from France.

Dubbed ‘a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music’ in Gramophone, this international ensemble performs music of the Classical and early Romantic periods on gut strings and with historical bows. The quartet’s unique sound – described in The Observer as ‘a shock to the ears of the best kind’ – is highly acclaimed by audiences and critics all over Europe.

The quartet will performs works from their second volume of Haydn “Sun” Quartets, launching their new BIS recording.

Programme

  • Bach: Contrapunctus 1, 4, 9 from The Art of Fugue
  • Haydn: First movement from String Quartet in B flat major, Op.76, No.4 'Sunrise'
  • Mozart: Last movement from String Quartet No.1 in G major, K.80
  • Schubert: First movement from String Quartet No.14 in D minor, 'Death and the Maiden'
  • Haydn: Second and fourth movements from String Quartet in D major, Op.20, No.4

This concert will be preceded by a complimentary drinks reception for ticket holders and is followed by an informal Q&A with the artists conducted by Katy Wright, Deputy Editor of Classical Music.
