Sacconi Quartet RCM Quartet in Association
Anna Webster clarinet
Rachmaninov String Quartet no 1 'Romance'
Helen Grime String Quartet
Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor op 115
We welcome back the Sacconi Quartet for an evening of stirring string playing.
Rachmaninov's String Quartet no 1 – one of two that the Russian began early in his career and never finished – is seldom performed today and promises a little-known treat for fans of the composer.
Helen Grime’s contemporary, organic take on the form follows, before the ensemble is joined by an RCM clarinettist for a performance of Brahms' tender Clarinet Quintet.
