The dynamic and charismatic Heath Quartet are fast earning a reputation as one of the most exciting British chamber ensembles of the moment. In May 2013, they became the first ensemble in 15 years to win the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artists Award. They are in huge demand here and abroad, often collaborating with artists of the calibre of Ian Bostridge, Stephen Hough, Mark Padmore and Lawrence Power.
The quartet arrive in Hexham fresh from a successful tour of prestigious venues in America, including New York’s Carnegie Hall. They were joined in America by the violinist, Natalie Klouda, who was standing in for Sara Wolstenhome. Sara is currently on maternity leave and unable to perform for us tonight. We are delighted that Natalie has agreed to take her place again and play the same programme that the quartet gave at the Carnegie Hall on 8th February.
Come and meet the quartet at an informal pre-concert talk in the Queen’s Hall’s White Room at 6.30pm.
Please note the change of programme from the one originally advertised.
Haydn String Quartet in D, op. 20 no. 4
