Sacconi Quartet RCM Quartet in Association

Eleanor Alberga String Quartet no 2
Schumann Piano Quintet in E flat major op 44

Hailed as a 'quartet of genuine substance' by The Daily Telegraph, the RCM’s Quartet in Association returns to the College to work with talented RCM musicians.

Following a performance of Eleanor Alberga’s electrifying String Quartet no 2, the Sacconi Quartet presents one of Schumann’s greatest chamber works. The challenging piano part, originally played by the great Clara Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn, is performed by one of the RCM’s exceptional pianists.
