Wajahat Khan & Allegri String Quartet
Beethoven String Quartet No.4 in C minor Op.18 No.4 Evening Raga Wajahat Khan on sarod, with tabla Wajahat Khan Raag Desh for sarod & string quartet. Diwali celebrations at Lakeside finish with a pioneering collaboration between two great classical music traditions – the Indian and Western – combining the rich heritage of the sarod and string quartet. Beethoven’s C minor Quartet Op.18 No.4 is followed by an Evening Raga based upon the Indian version of the same C minor scale, before the two are brought together in a work for sarod and string quartet composed by the world renowned sarod virtuoso Ustad Wajahat Khan. In this magical east-meets-west concert, maestro Wajahat Khan – descendant of an illustrious 400-year old Indian musical dynasty – is joined by the celebrated Allegri String Quartet, who this year mark their 60th anniversary.
