Join us as we welcome renowned Italian string quartet, Quartetto di Cremona, to our beautifully refurbished and acoustically fine hall.

The quartet’s focus and intensity brings life to music from the “tight blend and immaculate voicing” of their Brahms to the “sleek and elegant” dynamic contouring of their Mozart (Strad). The Quartetto di Cremona’s dedication to their work as a string quartet shows through their music. Their extensive repertoire ranges from the early Haydn quartets to Wolfgang Rihm and Helmut Lachenmann, with particular interest in contemporary Italian music including the composers Fabio Vacchi, Luciano Berio and Luigi Nono. Their debut recording for Decca released in April 2011 encompassed the complete string quartets by Fabio Vacchi. In 2013 the quartet released the complete Beethoven String Quartets for the German label Audite, which also issued Italian Journey, dedicated to Italian composers in November 2012. It is these two aspects of their interests that they present at today’s concert.

Presented in partnership with City Music Society.
