The Navarra Quartet enjoys an international reputation as one of today’s most dynamic and poetic string quartets. Prizewinners at competitions in Canada, Australia and Italy, their line-up includes Irish cellist Brian O’Kane.
Their programme this autumn is based around two of the most powerful works in the repertoire. Janacek’s Kreutzer Sonata evokes the raw emotions of love and jealousy while Schubert’s towering masterpiece Death and the Maiden pits fear and drama against the fragility of love and beauty. These are complemented by a string of evocative miniatures to create a fine programme, guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.
