  1. String Quintet No 5 in D K 593 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  2. Metamorphosen - Richard Strauss, arranged for string septet by Rudolf Leopold
  3. String Sextet in D minor, 'Souvenir de Florence' Op 70 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

The Brodsky Quartet’s fifth visit to Bovey Tracey is also a celebration of their 50th anniversary: fifty years since the original four players first played together.

This special occasion will be made extra-special by the appearance of three additional musicians - Luba Tunnicliffe (viola), Richard Tunnicliffe (cello) and Leon Bosch (bass) - to perform pieces for five, six and seven players.

The main work in the concert is Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Souvenir de Florence, occupying the whole of the second half. Those who heard the quartet play the same composer’s Quartet No.3 in 2014 may be expecting high energy, high emotion, tenderness and great melodies. They will not be disappointed!

Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen was written in 1945. This searing piece carries the same emotional punch as other mid-century pieces, such as Barber’s Adagio and Shostakovich’s Eighth Quartet.

Mozart’s string quintets are often held up as the work of a composer at the peak of his powers, and the String Quintet in D - written in his last year of life - is surely that. A bubbling, life-enhancing work overflowing with ideas, it makes for the perfect curtain-raiser.

Any profits from this event will be donated to Bovey Tracey Swimming Pool.
