March ‘Rush Hour’ and ‘Late Night’ Sessions

The Edinburgh Quartet will present the final of three “Late Sessions” in the Lounge Bar, Teviot Row House in Bristo Square, Edinburgh on Friday 1 March at 9.00pm. Admission is free.

The pilot series has focussed on British Music from the 17th century to the present day and has attracted large and enthusiastic crowds. On 1 March audiences can look forward to enjoying a drink in the candle-lit surroundings while listening to music by James MacMillan and John Tavener, among others.

The following week, on Wednesday 6 March at 5.30pm, the Quartet will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet in E flat major, Op. 74, the “Harp”, at the newly refurbished St Andrew’s & St George’s West Church George Street Building. In this, the final of three “rush hour” concerts pioneered by the Edinburgh Quartet this season the music will be enhanced by readings from Beethoven’s diaries and memoirs of Baron de Tremont on visiting the composer in 1809. Tickets £10 (students and children free) available from the Queen’s Hall Box Office, and at the door.

Both concerts are supported by Creative Scotland, and are part of the Quartet’s mission to provide experiences to entice all ages.
