Tarrodi String Quartet no 3 'Light Scattering'
Beethoven Quartet in F op 18 no 1
Firmly established as one of the leading string quartets of its generation, the Doric String Quartet receives enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the globe. Alongside their main season concerts the Quartet also has a busy international festival schedule.
Haydn's popular 'Joke' quartet opens the programme. Sibelius's quartet reflects the personal cross-roads the composer had reached in his transition from a romantic to a modernist composer and the lyrical and impressionistic Quartet no 3 by Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi was inspired by the play of light on glass. (This replaces the previously advertised 3 Divertimenti by Britten). One of Beethoven's much-loved quartets brings the concert to a close.
