Haydn: String Quartet in F minor Op. 20 No. 5
Mozart: String Quartet in D major, K575; ‘Prussian’
The Albion Quartet came together came together in 2016 with the individual members having already earned outstanding reputations as solo and chamber musicians. Following prestigious engagements in the UK and across Europe, the Quartet regularly broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, and has begun a series of recordings for Signum Records.
For this recital the Quartet has chosen to present an emotionally intense early Haydn quartet to contrast with the first of Mozart’s final set of quartets, written at the very height of the composer’s powers.
“ (…) one only needs the evidence of one’s own ears to recognise what fine musicians they are, and how well the four work together.” Seen and Heard International
