EQ Folk

folk-frontFollowing a glorious launch with the Rush Hour concert last week, the Edinburgh Quartet are thrilled to bring EQ: Folk to the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh and Glasgow City Halls.

Their first in the series of performance projects for the 2016-17 season; EQ: Folk highlights composers whose work has been inspired by folk music spanning two centuries; from Beethoven to the present day. Alasdair Nicolson’s String Quartet, written for EQ, was directly influenced by Gaelic folksong; Kodály’s String Quartet takes Hungarian folk music as its starting point; and Beethoven borrows from Russia!
