Honeymead Festival presents The Albion Quartet
Sat, 11th May at 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm£15
The Albion Quartet return to Hestercombe to play three wonderful string quartets.
They present a programme named “The Art of Fugue; Voices in Dialogue”, exploring the beauty of the four equal voices of the quartet acting as one organism.
Haydn’s revolutionary Opus 20 no 5 “Sun” Quartet in the stormy key of F minor is followed by the towering Grosse Fugue opus 133 by Beethoven.
In the second half, enjoy Walton’s gorgeously romantic quartet, finished in 1947 and considered one of his masterpieces, filled with luxurious melodies and rhythmic drive, and hidden snippets of his film music
The Albion Quartet is: Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Emma Parker (violins), Ann Beilby (viola) and Nathaniel Boyd (cello).
