Bozzini Quartet & Juliet Fraser
Tuesday 16 June 3pm (ends approx. 4.30pm)From £5.00 to £22.00
Part of Aldeburgh Festival
The Canada-based Bozzinis are renowned for their brilliant playing of both classical repertoire and experimental music. In Schubert their tone is glowing, while Bach’s solo violin movement is by turns consoling and melancholy. Their compatriot Cassandra Miller uses an extract of Bach’s Chaconne as the material for her piece, which is recognisably linked to its source but also detached and mesmeric.
Meanwhile Miller’s new piece Thanksong is based on the third movement of Beethoven’s late Quartet Op.132. Like Beethoven’s remarkable opening, Miller’s piece is quiet, inwardly focused and full of gratitude, with the relationship to Beethoven’s original found in the almost geological layers of ‘automatic’ performance.
