Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. String Quartet No 19 in C, 'Dissonance' K 465 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  2. String Quartet No 1, 'Kreutzer Sonata' - Leoš Janácek
  3. String Quartet in C minor Op 51 No 1 - Johannes Brahms

The unusually dissonant introduction to Mozart’s Quartet K 465, dedicated to Joseph Haydn, opens a colourful programme of works for string quartet, spanning almost 150 years. The centrepiece of the concert is Janácek’s 1923 work, inspired by Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata, while Brahms C minor quartet (possibly in this key to acknowledge as well as break free from Beethoven’s influence), over which Brahms agonised for many years and revised extensively, closes the evening.

Part of Bloomsbury Festival

Pre-concert talk at 5.30pm in the Brockway Room:

‘Small Steps and Giant Leaps’: endeavour, progress and pioneering achievements

To tie in with the Bloomsbury Festival which is taking place at Conway Hall this weekend, musicologist Peter Quantrill talks about the evening’s programme in the context of the development of the string quartet and its pioneers.
