Howard Assembly Room favourites the Brodsky Quartet return with an Italian flavoured programme.

At its heart is Verdi’s only significant chamber work, written at the height of his fame. It will also feature Puccini’s Crisantemi, composed as an emotionally charged elegy for string quartet, and Wolf’s Italian Serenade.

The second half of the programme is dedicated to Beethoven, comprising his String Quartet No 16 in F major, Op 135, the last major work he completed, written in October 1826, and At the grave of Beethoven commissioned by the Brodsky Quartet in 1999 from Karen Tanaka. This gentle and lyrical piece was commissioned for the bicentenary anniversary of Beethoven's 6 string quartets of Op 18, and is based on No 3.
