The Ruisi Quartet is celebrated both for deeply engaging performances of early repertoire and for its bold commissions. In this concert the Ruisi, founded by British/Sicilian brothers Alessandro and Max, contextualise the music of Oliver Leith, by juxtaposing his rework of a Matthew Locke suite with arrangements of 17th-century madrigals by Monteverdi, then move on to Haydn at his finest. Before they enter the intoxicating hazes of Leith’s The Big House, written expressly for the quartet, there will be a rare premiere from the highly individual cellist, composer and producer Oliver Coates.

Part of a composer focus on Oliver Leith (see also EXAUDI Thrilly Marvel Chants 28 Feb).

This event will last approximately two hours, including an interval.
