HAYDN Quartet in D, Op.20 No.4
BARTOK Quartet No. 1
BRAHMS Quartet in A Minor, Op.51 No.2
A welcome return visit to Norwich by one of the world’s leading string quartets. Bartók’s First Quartet was described by his compatriot Kodály as ‘a gradual return to life, more evocative with its modest four instruments than Berlioz with his huge orchestra’. Framing the Bartók are the wit and elegance of Haydn, and the eloquent passion of Brahms.
