Programme Note

The Albion String Quartet present a sumptuous array of works from the masters of the quartet medium, encompassing the pivotal shift from the classical to the romantic style, with a work from each major quartet cycle through to the great 20th-century giant Shostakovich.

Since forming in 2014, the group has enjoyed numerous competition successes including the Melbourne and Florence International Chamber Music Competitions, and awards from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust and ECHO Rising Stars. The Quartet’s thirst for exploring the repertoire of the chamber string quartet genre expresses itself through innovative and eclectic programming.

Pre-concert talks are given by Richard Wigmore, music writer, lecturer and broadcaster for BBC Radio 3.

Musicians: Tamsin Waley-Cohen violin, Emma Parker violin, Ann Bielby viola, Nathaniel Boyd cello
