The first period instrument string quartet to be selected as current BBC New Generation Artists, the Consone Quartet have made a name for themselves not only with their broadcast performances on BBC Radio 3 but with live performances at Wigmore Hall, the Cheltenham and Bath Festivals and extensive tours abroad in Europe and South America.
Their programme for New Town Concerts at The Queen's Hall offers a rare and intriguing chance to hear quartet music by Fanny Mendelssohn alongside that of her brother Felix.
Haydn String Quartet Op 71 No 2
Fanny Mendelssohn String Quartet in E flat
Felix Mendelssohn String Quartet Op 44 No 3
Keeping to the same format as the two opening events in the 2021/22 season, this concert will be slightly shorter with no interval, and seating will be 1 metre physically distanced. Read The Queen's Hall's safety measures in full here.
