Quatuor Danel

Quatuor Danel

Saturday, 26 March 2022, 7.30pm

The Quatuor Danel was founded in 1991 and has been at the forefront of the international music scene ever since. Russian composers have a special place in the quartet’s repertoire – they were the first, for example, to record all 17 of Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s stunning string quartets, single-handedly leading the revival of the composer’s music. They have also championed the string quartets by Shostakovich and recorded benchmark interpretations of Shostakovich’s quartets.

The all-Russian programme for this concert includes Weinberg’s spirited Quartet No.9 in F-sharp Minor; Lera Auerbach’s 2011 Quartet No.5, “Songs of Alkonost”, inspired by a mythical woman-headed bird; and Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No.3 in E-flat Minor, his final quartet and a poignant tribute to Ferdinand Laub, whom Tchaikovsky called “the best violinist of our time.”
