Albion String Quartet
Monday 16 September - Stratford PlayHouse
Ticket Price: £15.00
In our first lunchtime concert the Albion String Quartet, led by virtuoso Tamsin Waley-Cohen, play the urbane first of Mozart’s last three string quartets, followed by the most highly charged and emotionally fierce of Schubert’s quartets.
Quartet K 575
No.14 in D minor – “Death and the Maiden”
Formed in 2016, the Albion Quartet is led by Tamsin Waley-Cohen, one of the UK’s leading violinists. Having made their debuts to great acclaim last season at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam as well as the Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, the 2018/19 season sees the Albion Quartet’s debuts at the Wigmore Hall and at Town Hall/Symphony Hall Birmingham, as well as the release of the first disc of their Dvořák cycle for Signum records. They will also continue their residency at London’s Kings Place and perform at the Oxford Lieder Festival.
The ensemble's creative curiosity has already led to collaborations with several composers: In spring 2019, they will premiere a new work for soprano and string quartet by Kate Whitley at THSH Birmingham, and June 2019 will see the world premiere of a new full-length quartet by Freya Waley-Cohen at the Aldeburgh Festival.
