Kreutzer Quartet: Virginia Woolf's Music

Kreutzer Quartet: Virginia Woolf's Music

The Kreutzer Quartet presents music and readings that explore the significance of music for the work of the Bloomsbury Group and Woolf in particular. The concert juxtaposes the music that most influenced her – Bach Fugues, Mozart, Beethoven – with a new work by Jeremy Thurlow inspired by Woolf’s ‘Orlando’.

Bach/Mozart - Fugue Transcriptions K 405
Mozart - Quartet in F Major, K 590
Jeremy Thurlow - 'Memory is the seamstress'​
Beethoven - Quartet in F Major, Op. 135
