This concert by the Frankland Quartet forms part of the Berwick Music Series, which combines live concerts by nationally and internationally known performers, educational events for those who would like to know more about classical music, and an opportunity for local musicians to perform alongside world-famous professionals.
Running from August until November, the 2019 series will focus on the string quartet, and comprise three concerts, three talks about each of the concerts and will culminate in a workshop and a large-ensemble performance. Each event can be booked separately or you can buy a series pass here. You will find more details of the performers and the programme at www.berwickmusic.org.
The most perfect expression of human behaviour is a string quartet. Jeffrey Tate
The Frankland Quartet was formed by members of the Royal Northern Sinfonia who share a musical empathy and is a spin-off from a touring group created in 2017. Their Beethoven concerts last year were widely acclaimed, and they performed Haydn and Beethoven on BBC Radio 3 as part of the 'free thinking' festival in 2018. Members of the quartet, as well as their regular work with the RNS, have played in orchestras such as the Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of St Martins in the Field and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
They will perform works by Haydn, Medeksaite and Ravel.
