WHAT'S ON / Chiaroscuro Quartet

Edinburgh International Festival presents

Chiaroscuro Quartet

18 August 2017 at 11:00am

Bach: Art of Fugue (excerpts)
Haydn: String Quartet in E flat Op 76 No 6
Schubert: String Quartet No 14 in D minor 'Death and the Maiden'

Headed by acclaimed international soloist Alina Ibragimova, the Chiaroscuro Quartet is one of today’s most respected period-instrument chamber groups, famed for its fiery, unforgettable performances of galvanising energy.

The four players contrast the drama and focus of Haydn’s unpredictable E flat Quartet Op 76 No 6, with Schubert’s deeply moving ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartet, in which the composer confronts his own mortality with some of his most heartfelt, songful melodies. They begin with music from Bach’s miraculous tribute to the power of counterpoint, The Art of Fugue.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
