HAYDN Quartet No 64 in D, Op 76 No 5
SCHUMANN Quartet No 1 in A minor, Op 41 No 1 
“The thought of quartets gives me pleasure”, wrote Robert Schumann to his young wife, and in time he would write 3 as a birthday gift to her. The Castalian Quartet plays us the 1st – a cracker, showing Schumann at his mercurial, poetic best. Intense, melodious, dramatic, driven, passionate and high-spirited by turn – the perfect showcase for this superb young ensemble. They also bring Caroline Shaw, a new face at ENF, who is the youngest ever recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for Music, and composer of numerous chamber works for strings. Her short Entr’acte is inspired by Haydn, so who better to open with? His Op 76 No 5 is a piece to leave you with a huge smile on your face!
