Faculty of Music


Haydn String Quartet in B flat, Op. 55 No.3
Bartók String Quartet No. 6, Sz. 114
TBC Quintet with Cambridge University Student 

The last of Haydn’s three Op.55 quartets opens this concert, which continues with the last of Bartók’s quartets. In this late period of exile in the USA, Bartók reverts to a more immediately accessible and expressive style which is startlingly communicative and strong. The unknown quantity is the ever-popular performance of a quintet in collaboration with one of the many extremely talented Cambridge University students – often not even from the Music Faculty! This has always been a particularly exciting and revealing event.
