—The Guardian, London
Arguably the greatest string quartet in the world.
Sun, Jan 17, 3pm
Each concert this season highlights a Classical, Romantic, and 20th-century work, the first including Mozart's elegant Quartet No. 15, one of the six he dedicated to Haydn; Henri Dutilleux's Ainsi la nuit (Thus the Night), a refined and compelling work from 1976; and Brahms' ebullient Quartet No. 3.
The second concert features Britten's Third String Quartet, which the group has recorded to great acclaim; Debussy's sole quartet, which the Strad praised as "masterfully played and powerfully projected," with "an almost orchestral emotional resonance"; and Haydn's masterful Op. 77, No. 1, a work infused with the rhythmic vitality of traditional Hungarian folk music.
