Sun 1 Jul 2018

Daniel Lebhardt piano
Haydn String Quartet in C major, Op. 20 No. 2
Elgar String Quartet in E minor, Op. 83
Brahms Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34

Since its acclaimed Coffee Concert series in 2017, the Castalian Quartet has received the prestigious inaugural Merito String Quartet Award & Valentin Erben Prize and won a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award. The Quartet return with the brilliant Hungarian pianist Daniel Lebhardt for Brahms’s Piano Quintet which, in its anguish and fiery intensity, is a dramatic tour de force. Beforehand, Haydn’s milestone Op 20 quartet is from the set that defined the genre in its formative years, while Elgar’s late masterpiece is characterised by a warm yet restrained eloquence.
