Dvořák Quartet ‘American’ 30′
Janáček Quartet No. 1 ‘Kreutzer Sonata’ 18′
Mozart Quartet in Bb K589 ‘Prussian’ 26′
(ends approx. 9.15pm)
Over the last two decades the Belcea Quartet has taken a commanding place amongst contemporary string quartets. ‘The intelligence and honesty of the playing was as impressive as its energy and vehemence’ wrote The New York Times of a recent performance, and it is hard to think of qualities better suited to Janáček’s explosive quartet. But the freshness of their approach, coupled with a searching intelligence, yield comparable insights in both Dvořák’s much-loved quartet and Mozart’s brilliantly inventive work.
