Schubert String Quartet No.12 in C minor, ‘Quartettsatz’, D.703
Janáček String Quartet No.1 'Kreutzer Sonata’
Mendelssohn String Quartet No.6 in F minor, Op.80
Praised for its rich sonority and the searing emotional intensity of its performances, the Arcadia Quartet from Romania returns to Lakeside for a concert of profoundly moving music. Janáček’s ‘Kreutzer Sonata’ mirrors the passion, conflict and drama of Tolstoy’s novella. Grief-stricken from his sister’s sudden death in 1847, Mendelssohn’s virtuosic final string quartet is imbued with anguish, relieved by the lyrical tenderness of the Adagio.
The Romanian Arcadia Quartet certainly have the measure of the dramatic aspects of these remarkable works."
BBC Music Magazine
They are not afraid to take matters to the extremes which Janáček invites [...] a bold but thoughtful performance of the two remarkable works."
