The Solem Quartet

Beethoven:  Quartet in D major, Op. 18. No. 3

Bartók:  Quartet No. 3, Sz. 85

Schumann:  Quartet No. 3 in A major, Op. 41 No. 3

We are delighted to welcome the fabulous Solem Quartet to play the first concert of our new season.

The quartet was formed in 2011 at the University of Manchester and won the Royal Overseas League Ensemble Competition in 2014.  Since then, they have performed at venues across the United Kingdom including the Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Bridgewater Hall. They were 2016/17 Park Lane Group Artists and were also selected as Tunnell Trust Artists in 2016, leading to a tour of Scotland in 2018.

Beethoven’s gentle and lyrical quartet in D major, the first he composed, precedes Bartók’s third quartet – full of mystery and yet filled with the vigorous energy of the composer’s beloved folk music.

Schumann wrote his entire output for string quartet in the space of five weeks in 1842; the third quartet displays his characteristic lyricism and painful romanticism.

For your diary:

On Sunday 11th November the Cavendish Wind Quintet play a very varied and eclectic programme at the Old Church. The first half includes Malcolm Arnold’s witty Sea Shanties, Vaughan Williams’ haunting Vocalises and the renowned Wind Quintet by Holst. The second half features vivid arrangements of Mozart and Gershwin, the irresistible Six Bagatelles by Ligeti and a new piece by local composer James Moriarty. We expect a wind quintet to sound fabulous in the Old Church – this concert is not to be missed!
