WHAT'S ON / Gringolts Quartet

Edinburgh International Festival presents

Gringolts Quartet

12 August 2017 at 11:00am

Haydn: String Quartet in D Op 50 No 6 ‘The Frog’
Jörg Widmann: Quartet No 3 ‘The Hunt’
Brahms: String Quartet No 3 in B flat Op 67

Led by international violin soloist Ilya Gringolts, the Gringolts Quartet has dazzled audiences from Salzburg to London’s Wigmore Hall with its remarkable technical prowess and its raw, radiant, revealing accounts of music old and new.

Brahms’s bright, sunny and exquisitely crafted Third Quartet closes their rich, witty International Festival debut recital. It follows Haydn’s brilliantly comic ‘The Frog’ Quartet, and the darker humour of contemporary German composer Jörg Widmann’s fantastical ‘The Hunt’ Quartet – which ends in a literal musical hunt of one of the quartet players.

This concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 23 August.

Supported by Niall and Carol Lothian
