Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. String Quartet in D major Op 76 No 5 - (Franz) Joseph Haydn
  2. String Quartet in E minor Op 83 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. String Quartet No 8 in E minor, 'Rasumovsky' Op 59 No 2 - Ludwig van Beethoven

In the dying months of the First World War, Elgar retreated into the Sussex countryside and wrote a string quartet: dark, mysterious and intensely beautiful. His wife called it “wood magic”, and it will cast its spell over the whole of this typically imaginative programme from the Castalian Quartet – a haunting contrast to the joyous sunlight of Haydn’s pioneering Quartet Op 76 No 5, and a wonderfully thought- provoking upbeat to Beethoven’s epic second ‘Razumovsky’ Quartet.
