Frank Bridge

Novelletten (1904)

Schumann

String Quartet in A minor, Op 41 No 1

Webern

Langsamer Satz (1905)

Mozart

String Quartet in G K387 ‘Spring’

This young German-based Korean quartet made quite an impression when they won the prestigious Wigmore Hall International Quartet Competition last year and we are delighted to welcome them for our opening concert. They play two great quartets by Schumann and Mozart along with highly romantic early works by English composer Frank Bridge and the Viennese Anton Webern whose ‘Slow Movement’ is a beautiful love-song to his future wife.

"Here are four young instrumentalists that play with depth and maturity which (and even this cliché can be swept off the table) does not depend on age”. Süddeutsche Zeitung
