Carducci Quartet
Venue: Influence Church, Victoria Road
Time: 19:30
The Carducci are always a huge hit with our audiences - superb musicians, and one of the finest string quartets around.

Haydn String Quartet Op. 20, No. 4
Glass String Quartet No. 2
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 11
----------
Webern Langsamer Satz
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 95

How many times have we had the Carducci Quartet? We think this must be their sixth visit to Richmond, and they are always a huge hit with our audiences. Superb musicians, personable, with an exceptional rapport, they are one of the finest string quartets around.

Tonight the Carduccis perform a generously proportioned concert. It includes a much-loved Haydn piece, one of the very first 'modern' string quartets, and Webern's highly charged Langsamer Satz, described as a "little masterpiece". Composed in 1905, Langsamer Satz was never publicly performed - astonishingly - until 1962, just a few years before Shostakovich's very different, very intense Quartet No. 11. The piece by Philip Glass is a companion to his Third Quartet, which the Carduccis performed in Richmond a few years ago, and which gave our audience such pleasure.

What a wonderful close to the 2016-17 Richmondshire Concerts season.
