- Heath Quartet
- Hannes Minnaar piano
The Heath Quartet trains the spotlight on the first of Haydn’s ‘Russian’ Quartets, a work that combines pathos and popular melodies, grace and dark humour.
The Heaths also open their season-long survey of Jörg Widmann’s five string quartets with the German composer’s first foray into the genre, an entrancing twelve-minute adventure in textural and tonal possibilities.
