Tamsin Waley-Cohen returns to Crowcombe Court once again with the Honeymead Ensemble to play three wonderful quartets on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon:
Haydn – “Emperor” Quartet , opus 76 no 3. The third of his final set of six great quartets, written in London, and nicknamed for the melody, inspired by the English National Anthem, which became the national anthem of Austria and, later, Germany.
Schumann – Quartet opus 41 no 1 -Written in the early years of his marriage to the great Clara Schumann, and dedicated to his close friend Felix Mendelssohn, this is Schumann at his most romantic and playful.
Schubert – Death and the Maiden, string Quartet no 14 in D minor – A pillar of the repertoire, considered one of the greatest quartets ever written, this is Schubert at his most dramatic and heartbreaking.
Saturday 6th May – 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm)
Sunday 7th May – 3pm (doors open at 2.30pm)
Tickets can booked via Music on the Quantocks
