Brodsky Quartet: Schubert Hour – ‘Death and the Maiden’, D810

Schubert Hour

Turina The Bullfighter’s Prayer, Op.34
Schubert String Quartet No. 14 in D minor Death and the Maiden

In the second edition of the hugely popular hour-long series, the Brodsky Quartet perform Schubert’s last three quartets and his quintet, lovingly set up with musical preludes.

With Turina’s ‘bullfighter’s prayer’, we enter a simmering Spanish sound-world, alive with flamenco-like gestures.  This prefaces the musical inferno that is Schubert’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet, an indelible masterpiece written after the composer realised he was dying, and still enthralling musicians and listeners two hundred years on.

Dates & start times:Thu 25 Feb - 8.45pm
Thu 14 Oct - 6.45pm
Venue:Kings Place Hall One - GA
