String Quartet No. 2 in F major Op. 41 No. 2

*Commissioned by Smorgaschord with support from the Vaughan Williams Foundation

Closing the festival with an exciting bang, join us for the UK premiere of György Kurtág’s collaboration with his son, Zwiegespräch. The performance sees Kurtág Jr join forces with the Kleio Quartet (‘a wonderfully dedicated group of musicians who bring assuredness and freshness to everything they play’ - Alina Ibragimova).

There’s also a chance to hear the world premiere of Smorgaschord’s 2023 commission from Laurence Osborn. The piece is written for the exceptional young horn player Ben Goldscheider, and, since it’s going to be so special, there’s an opportunity to hear the music not once, but twice.

To close, Schumann’s String Quartet No. 2: full of the jubilance of this wonderful, midsummer day.
