€17/€14



The Piatti Quartet return for their latest tour for the National String Quartet Foundation with a wide-ranging and entertaining programme. They open with Benjamin Britten’s arrangement for string quartet of Purcell’s memorable and atmospheric Chacony. Mendelssohn’s beautiful E flat quartet was his first published quartet and from the first bars draws the listener into a world of dramatic storytelling. Charlotte Harding’s ‘Iorsa’ evokes the scenic glen on the Isle of Arran while Moeran’s second quartet offers a beguiling world of English and Irish folk song and dance, mixed perhaps with the influence of Debussy.
