Beethoven String Quartet in F major Op 59 No 1 ‘Razumovsky’
Where better to open our 10th Festival than Whitekirk’s beautiful mediaeval church with its magical acoustic. And who better than Quatuor Mosaïques, making a welcome return to the Festival with three programmes that include Beethoven’s revolutionary ‘Razumovsky’ quartets. The Mosaïques’ stellar reputation as one of the world’s leading period instrument ensembles is founded on their performances of the Viennese classics, especially Haydn, whose music has had an honoured place in every Lammermuir Festival since the beginning. We can think of no finer interpreters of these wonderful pieces.
In co-production with BBC Radio 3
