Sacconi quartet270x180 colour

The Sacconi Quartet

Programme:

  • Haydn. String Quartet Op 20 No 6*
  • Mozart. String Quartet in D Major K 575
  • Beethoven. String Quartet Op 59 No 3 (Razumovsky)

The Sacconi Quartet has become one of the most sought after young quartets. They have travelled widely, received many awards and have recently established their own festival in Kent. They are currently ‘Quartet in Residence’ at The Royal College of Music.  Musical Opinion recently described them as:

"An exceptional ensemble"

Their recital comprises three important quartets from the great masters of the classical era. Sacconi are also very keen to promote chamber music amongst young string players, who often join orchestras without experiencing small group ensembles. They have therefore agreed to coach some of the advanced string players of both Woodbridge secondary schools in the first work on the programme. The players will form themselves into quartets, prepare and perform one movement of the work in a free concert to ticket holders before the main concert at 6.30pm. Come and be impressed!
