Programme Note

The Piatti Quartet, praised for their profound music making and lyrical warmth, gained acclaim after winning the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition. Since then, they’ve captivated audiences worldwide, showcasing their talent through international broadcasts. Join them at Conway Hall as they delve into Moeran’s Second String Quartet.

The Piatti Quartet on their programme:

“Just as the Dvořák’s ‘American’ includes folk tunes from an adopted home in the USA, so too does Moeran’s Second String Quartet, written after moving to Ireland in 1934. Drawing upon the rich and varied tapestry of Irish folk tunes he collected, Moeran weaves a captivating work from yearning, wistful airs to energetic and boisterous reels, all dressed up in a unique harmonic language albeit heavily influenced by Debussy, Brahms and even Mendelssohn. Why was this quartet never published and when was it written? Come along to Conway Hall to find out our theory!”
