Chilingirian Quartet

Beethoven String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 95 ‘Serioso’
Bartók String Quartet No. 3
Dvorák String Quartet No. 13 in G major, Op. 106

Founded in 1971 the Chilingirian Quartet is one of the world’s most celebrated and widely-travelled ensembles, renowned for its thrilling interpretations of the great quartets and commanding performances of contemporary repertoire. In this
concert they perform Beethoven’s Op.95 ‘Serioso’ quartet following the recent recording of the quartet. Bartók’s Third Quartet is a continuous composition divided into four distinct parts that contrast dense, tightly conceived fugal writing with lively dance-like motifs fizzing with energy.
