The Castalian String Quartet presents a programme of three string quartets from Viennese composers. Starting with one of Mozart's quartet tributes to Haydn, his String Quartet No. 15 in D minor; this is followed by one of the earliest known string quartets written by a woman composer, Fanny Mendelssohn's String Quartet in E flat major; and ending with Felix Mendelssohn’s final String Quartet, his last major work, powerful and tempestuous.
The concert will be preceded by a talk by Dr Sebastian Wedler at 6.30pm.
The Faculty of Music regrets to announce that the quartet will no longer be performing Beethoven's String Quartet No. 3 in D major, Op. 18/3 or Berg's – String Quartet, Op. 3. Ticket holders will be notified shortly with more information.
