Schumann: String Quartet op. 41 No. 3
The Minguet Quartet, founded in 1988, is one of the most internationally sought-after string quartets today and gives guest performances in all the great concert halls of the world. The Quartet’s passionate and intelligent interpretations always deliver inspiring listening experiences – ‘for the joy in sound and expression with which the ensemble makes the works speak enlivens even the smallest detail’. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
The Quartet takes its name from Pablo Minguet, a Spanish philosopher of the 18th century who attempted, in his writings, to facilitate access to the fine arts for all sectors of the population – and this idea is one of the Quartet’s chief artistic concerns. To that end, the Quartet offers us a taste of the new and well-loved in this beautifully constructed programme.
This concert is part of the 2017/18 concert series at the School of Music.
