Cancelled: Cuarteto Casals; Alban Gerhardt cello
Shostakovich and Schubert
Owing to illness, tonight’s concert is cancelled. There will be no replacement concert.
- Cuarteto Casals
- Alban Gerhardt cello
What is perhaps the most beloved of all chamber works is made possible by a second cellist joining with a string quartet to form the personnel required by Schubert’s quintet, completed during his final months. The Spanish Cuarteto Casals – formed in Madrid in 1997, but now resident in Barcelona – also perform Shostakovich’s autobiographical masterpiece.
Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)
- String Quartet No. 8 in C minor Op. 110
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
- String Quintet in C D956
