Proms Chamber Music 6: Escher Quartet

Mon 20 Aug 2012 13.00

Cadogan Hall, London SW1

Event Price: £10 - £12

The fourth of Hugh Wood’s five string quartets was recently selected for Encore – a scheme run by the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3 designed to give repeat performances and broadcasts of works by living British composers. Wood's quartet is a masterly four-movement piece: music of passion and closely wrought integrity. It follows a performance of Debussy’s early quartet, which already reaches into the future with its sensual colour and improvisatory tone.
