Mendelssohn - Quartet in E flat major Op.12 [1829]
Moeran - Quartet in E flat [1923]
Charlotte Harding - Iorsa [2022]
Dvořák - Quartet in F major Op.96 ‘American’ [1893]

The Piatti Quartet return for their latest tour for the National String Quartet Foundation with a wide-ranging and entertaining programme. Mendelssohn’s beautiful E flat quartet was his first published quartet and from the first bars draws the listener into a world of dramatic story-telling. Moeran’s second quartet shares the same key but in contrast offers a beguiling world of English and Irish folk song and dance, mixed perhaps with the influence of Debussy. Charlotte Harding’s ‘Iorsa’ evokes the scenic glen on the Isle of Arran, while Dvořák’s famed ‘American’ Quartet draws on both native American and Slavonic folk music, as well as, in its strong rhythmic vitality, on the composer’s fascination with railways.

Part of a nationwide tour supported by the Arts Council and RTÉ Lyric FM
