Piatti Quartet

Friday, 27 September 2019, 1.00pm

Purcell Chacony arr. Britten
Áine Mallon Flotsam
Schubert Quartet No. 15 in G major

Prizewinners at the 2015 Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition, the Piatti Quartet has performed in major venues and festivals throughout the UK and worldwide. Britten's arrangement of Purcell's Chacony is followed by Áine Mallon's Flotsam, a sonic exploration of how plastic pollution in our oceans is affecting marine life. Franz Schubert wrote ‘For long years I felt torn between the greatest grief and the greatest love...’, words which go to the heart of his epic G major quartet, perhaps the most noble yet poignant musical statement ever made.
