Our Autumn 2019 series of concerts comes to a close with Schubert’s G major quartet, his last work for the genre. To welcome in the festive season, the Piatti Quartet’s performance begins with Suk’s Meditation on ‘St Wenceslas’, composed when he was second violinist in the Bohemian String Quartet and later arranged for string orchestra. Shostakovich’s eighth quartet, arguably the most well known of his 15 essays in the genre and containing numerous self quotes, lies at the centre of a programme not to be missed!
