String Quartet in D, Op 44 No 1 

Making a welcome return to Milngavie to inaugurate our comeback season, the brilliant Consone Quartet offer a fascinating programme. Most intriguing is the lovely quartet by Felix Mendelssohn’s beloved sister Fanny, herself an outstanding talent who was inevitably overshadowed by her famous brother. The Consone’s masterly, historically-informed performances of classical works have brought them international praise and their Haydn is always a special delight.
