Castalian Quartet

with Simon Rowland-Jones (viola)

Haydn String Quartet in D major, Op 76 No 5
Britten String Quartet No 2 in C major, Op 36 (1945)
Brahms String Quintet No 1 in F major, Op 88

Sini Simonen violin
Daniel Roberts violin
Charlotte Bonneton viola
Christopher Graves cello

For its second concert in this series, the dynamic Castalian Quartet performs masterworks from the Classical, Romantic and 20th-century repertories They begin with the ceaseless energy of Haydn’s fifth Op 76 quartet, which explores the extremes of emotion and technical skill. Britten’s homage to Purcell, composed for the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death, is moody, mysterious and brimful of atmosphere. The Quartet is joined by the violist Simon Rowland-Jones for Brahms’s opulent, lilting and joyous First Quintet.
