Live from the Crucible Studio

String Quartet Op.18 No.4 (‘24)
String Quartet Op.74 Harp (‘31)

Two great Beethoven string quartets full of contrast and reflecting different phases of the composer’s long engagement with the quartet form. Quartet No.4 is an elegantly constructed tussle between light and dark: sparse, delicate and urgent, its lyricism and melancholy is underscored by youthful wit. Quartet No.10 takes its nickname from a remarkable pizzicato section, and the four movements alternate between the wild and the restrained, the raging and the rhapsodic.

This concert is dedicated to the memory of AH Thornton MBE 1929-2021. During the 1980s Tony was very involved with the Crucible Theatre, and made the Studio Theatre available to the Lindsay String Quartet for the very first Sheffield Chamber Music Festival in 1984.
