Plays Schubert, Haydn & Bach
Friday 18 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Bach Art of Fugue (excerpts)
Haydn String Quartet in E flat Op 76 No 6
Schubert String Quartet No 14 in D minor 'Death and the Maiden'

Headed by acclaimed international soloist Alina Ibragimova, the Chiaroscuro Quartet is one of today’s most respected period-instrument chamber groups, famed for its fiery, unforgettable performances of galvanising energy.

The four players contrast the drama and focus of Haydn’s unpredictable E flat Quartet Op 76 No 6, with Schubert’s deeply moving ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartet, in which the composer confronts his own mortality with some of his most heartfelt, songful melodies. They begin with music from Bach’s miraculous tribute to the power of counterpoint, The Art of Fugue.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
