An Equal Music: Voices in Dialogue. A programme exploring the role of counterpoint in three very different works from the quartet repertoire. The Art of Fugue frames them, and clarifies the references to Bach, the original master of the form, whose seminal work continues to fascinate and challenge composers to this day.

A shared belief in the visceral, communicative power of the string quartet has brought together four outstanding performers of their generation to form the Albion Quartet. With a wealth of experience in some of the UKs foremost ensembles between them (including the Badke and Navarra Quartets, and the London Bridge Trio), they have enjoyed numerous competition successes between them, including first prize winners of the Melbourne and Florence International Chamber Music Competitions, awards from the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition, Borletti-Buitoni Trust and ECHO Rising Stars. The members regularly perform in halls across the globe including Het Concertgebouw, Konzerthaus Berlin, Slovak Philharmonic, Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Hall. Following years of close collaboration, the members are delighted to further their reputation for creative and imaginative performances in this exciting new venture.
Forthcoming engagements include recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw and the Aldeburgh Festival. Their debut recordings of Dvorak quartets will be released on Signum Records in 2018. They play a stunning quartet of instruments, including a Stradivarius, Amati, Guarnerius and Grancino.
Pre-concert talk with Jessica Beck at 5.30pm in the Brockway Room.
