Haydn String Quartet in C major Op.20 No.2 25’
Freya Waley-Cohen new work (Aldeburgh Festival commission, world premiere) 20’
Thomas Larcher Cold Farmer 14’
Schubert String Quartet in D minor D810 ‘Death and the Maiden’ 40’

Larcher says that Cold Farmer (1990) was written at a time when he was ‘breaking away from restraints both real and imagined’, and its music explores many textures within a prevailing atmosphere of inwardness and yearning. Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartet owes its nickname to a movement derived from his song of the same name, but the whole work seems in thrall to Death’s cold, seductive embrace.
