The Consone Quartet’s mission is to explore and recreate the soundworld of the classical and early Romantic string quartet repertoire on period instruments. In this intriguing programme they are joined by soprano Gillian Keith to present Lieder by Schubert and the Mendelssohns that have influenced famous string quartets, given added richness in new arrangements by tenor and composer Tom Randle.

FREE Pre-Concert Foyer Performance – Riccardo Pes (cello), 5.45pm

SCHUBERT/WEBERN/RICCARDO PES Der Jüngling and der Quelle
JS BACH ‘Geduld! Geduld!’ from the St Matthew’s Passion
JS BACH Cello Suite No. 1 in G, BWV1007

The programme starts with an arrangement of three of the lieder in the main programme, linked contrastingly with the Second Viennese School of Webern’s Three Little Pieces for Cello and Piano. Each arrangement ends with a musical comment composed by Riccardo and based on the original material. Mendelssohn conducted Bach’s St Matthew Passion in 1829 to great acclaim, effectively ushering in the Bach-Renaissance. ‘Geduld! Geduld!’ is a transcription of the famous Aria and Recitativo from St Matthew Passion. Mendelssohn often paid tribute to Bach, and so the programme closes with one of his most iconic works for cello solo.
