Heath Quartet

Bach, Gubaidulina, Britten and Beethoven


  • Heath Quartet

Britten’s second string quartet, originally premièred at Wigmore in 1945, makes a welcome return to the Hall. The Heath Quartet precedes this with Gubaidulina’s emotional take on Bach’s great unfinished fugue and close the performance with Beethoven’s A minor quartet, with its beautiful Adagio, full of overlapping and entwining melodies.
