September 2014

Whether you’re a long-time chamber music lover or just discovering this beautiful form of music, you’ll love our August/September tour Salon Series 2014.

We’ll be transporting you back to the days of musical soirees, performing in intimate spaces and gracious settings with three programmes playing on the theme of ‘Music and Ideas’ and including plenty of audience favourites.

We’re looking forward to this brand new series and hope you’ll come along and socialise with friends and us.

Salon 2

Haydn’s Gypsy Quartet and Grieg’s String Quartet in G minor feature in this programme for our musically sophisticated audience. These two multi-movement works are balanced by two shorter complete works. And, to provide an intriguing touch, each of the four musicians plays a solo movement from one of the suites by J. S. Bach providing an opportunity to highlight the individual instruments which form the string quartet.

  • Movements from the Bach suites
  • Haydn – ‘Gypsy’ Quartet Opus 54 no 2
  • Zhou Long – ‘Song of the Ch’in’
  • Wolf – Italian Serenade
  • Grieg – String Quartet in G minor, Opus 27
