Mozart: String Quartet No 14 in G major, K387
Villa-Lobos: String Quartet No 6
Verdi: String Quartet in E minor
The EQ travel South in the final programme in their 2017-18 “North-South-East-West” series. First to Southern Europe with the only surviving chamber music work of Giuseppe Verdi, his powerful String Quartet in E minor, then on to South America with Villa-Lobos’s nationalistic 6th quartet, nicknamed the “Brazilian”. Mozart’s “Spring” quartet serves as a prelude to their journey.
Amateur musicians who play violin, viola and cello are invited to join the Edinburgh Quartet for a free workshop before the performance (at 6pm for approximately 1 hour), and to then join the quartet on stage to perform the Tom Harrold piece ‘Elegy’. Scores for this flexible, free and partly improvised piece can be made available in advance and it is recommended for players of grade 5/6+ standard.
