L van Beethoven String quartet No. 131 in C sharp minor
A Webern Langsamer Satz
The string quartet is a musical conversation between four people, four instruments and four hearts.
The Buxton International Festival is proud to launch its inaugural BIF Chamber Ensemble initiative at this year’s summer festival. The BIF Chamber Ensemble is a platform to provide mentoring, engagement, and performance opportunities to talented chamber ensembles working in the United Kingdom. There has never been a more important time to support emerging professional musicians, many of whom have been badly affected by the pandemic.
The project will provide the ensemble with five concerts, two at the festival and three more throughout the year in local National Trust properties.
Our very first BIF Chamber Ensemble for 2021 is the multi-talented Corran Quartet. The quartet studied with James Boyd and Catherine Manson through ‘MusicWorks’ and performed live on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’.
