The Belcea Quartet has gained an enviable reputation as one of the leading string quartets of the new generation. They continue to take the British and international chamber music circuit by storm, consistently receiving critical acclaim for their performances.
We are therefore delighted that Corina, Krystof, Axel and Antoine are opening the Festival with a mixed programme of Mozart, Mendelssohn and Janáček at the Menuhin Hall on 3 May.
Sandy Burnett, the former Radio 3 broadcaster, musician and author recently described the Belcea Quartet as “a consistently exciting group who are sure to push Janáček’s first string quartet, the “Kreutzer Sonata,” to the very edge.”
This promises to be a night of very exciting music and one definitely not to be missed!
The Belcea Quartet are: Corina Belcea (Violin); Krysztof Chorzelski (Viola); Axel Schacher (Violin) and Antoine Lederlin (Cello)
