From Friday 3rd May 2019 19:00 to 21:00
Martinů: String Quartet No.3
Beethoven: String Quartet in B flat Opus 18 No. 6
Britten: Three Divertimenti for String Quartet
Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E minor Opus 44 No. 2
Firmly established at the pinnacle of the string quartet world, the Doric String Quartet has played in north Norfolk for 15 consecutive years, right from the start of their career.
Beethoven and Mendelssohn are in turn preceded by two pithy 20th century works; the rarely heard 3rd String Quartet by Bohuslav Martinů, composed in the modernistic Paris of the 1920s and Benjamin Britten’s startlingly original early ‘Divertimenti’ from the early 30s.
