Programme: Haydn's Quartet No.1, Shostakovitch String
Quartet No.7 and Beethoven's "Razumovsky" String Quartet.
This French quartet made such a tremendous impression on us two years ago that we were eager to invite them back. They are developing an international career and have further recording plans. Their CD which includes Shostakovich Piano Quintet, recorded with the charismatic pianist Daniel Kadouch, gives a good example of their committed musicianship and now we have a second chance to hear them live.
