Imaginative quartet looking forward to Tetbury concert

Where: Tetbury Goods Shed

When: Saturday, December 8, 7.30pm

The Eusebius Quartet is fast gaining a reputation for imaginative and communicative performances.

The members of the quartet have played together in different formations for many years, having met as teenagers studying together and then again later at IMS Prussia Cove.

After completing studies in London, New York, Helsinki, Paris and the Netherlands they have been very excited to reunite as a quartet, sharing their passion for the extraordinary music written for this formation.

Finalists of the 2018 Royal Overseas League Competition, the quartet regularly performs throughout the UK and abroad - including Kings Place, Conway Hall, St James' Piccadilly and School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe - as well as frequently playing on BBC Radio 3's In Tune.

The quartet enjoys experimenting with different styles of playing, studying early Haydn editions as well as string quartet recordings made in the twenties and thirties and feel extremely lucky to have this opportunity to spend their lives exploring the intricacy and importance of fine quartet-playing today.

They have been Quartet in Residence at the Lewes Chamber Music Festival, Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival and at FitzFest, Fitzrovia's newest music festival.

Upcoming engagements for this season include performances at Kings Place London, in Lucera, Italy and a residency at the Britten-Pears Young Artists Programme at Snape Maltings in the Spring.

The Programme:

Joseph Haydn - String Quartet Op.64 No.3

Robert Schumann - String Quartet Op.41 No.2 in F major

Interval

Erich Wolfgang Korngold - String Quartet No.2 Op.26

Early bird advance tickets are £15 available from https://shed-arts.co.uk/event/eusebius-quartet/  while on the door on the night, the cost is £17.50.
