Additional Artist
Cédric Tiberghien (fortepiano) will be joining Chiaroscuro Quartet for the above concert. The programme has therefore changed and will now be as follows:


  • Chiaroscuro Quartet
  • Alina Ibragimova violin
  • Pablo Hernán Benedí violin
  • Emilie Hörnlund viola
  • Claire Thirion cello
  • Cédric Tiberghien fortepiano

Performing music of the Classical and early Romantic periods on gut strings and with historical bows are the hallmarks of an ensemble that Gramophone has described as ‘a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music’; for its part, The Observer has called the result ‘a shock to the ears of the best kind.’ The group’s programme includes a rare outing for one (1858) of the seven quartets by Emilie Mayer, a German composer much admired for her instrumental compositions during her lifetime (1812-83).
