The theme of counterpoint allows the Albion Quartet to explore four very different composers’ treatments, starting with excerpts from Bach’s great Art of Fugue, including Haydn and Schumann and finishing with William Walton’s 1947 string quartet, which is full of taut and gritty counterpoint, especially in the first movement’s four-part fugue.
