Boccherini – String Quintet op. 30 No. 6 La Musica Notturna della Strade di Madrid
Borodin String Quartet No 2 in D
Schubert String Quintet in C, D956
This enticing programme brings together long-time St George’s favourites, the Brodsky Quartet, with 2012 BBC Young Musician winner, Laura van der Heijden. Her three appearances at St George’s in the last year have demonstrated her emergence as a post-prodigy performer of the highest calibre and captivating presence.
Schubert’s last chamber work, composed just two months before his death and justifiably regarded as one of the greatest, ‘bucket list’ pieces in the classical canon, features a transcendently beautiful slow movement. Likewise, the central Nocturne of Borodin’s second quartet has become much loved for its richly melodic, emotional resonance.
