The renowned Solem Quartet perform Debussy’s beautiful early string quartet from the 1890s, following it with music inspired by Debussy’s radical new approach to style – Bartók’s remarkable third quartet and two colourful pieces by Lili Boulanger, completed in 1914. The musicians are then joined by the violist Shiry Rashkovsky to perform Mendelssohn’s joyful and ebullient String Quintet in A major.
The performance will last approximately 2hrs, including an interval.
