String quartets in Islington: the Corran Quartet live

Corran Quartet - Melody Lane concert
The Corran Quartet will be giving its first post-lockdown concert on Sunday 9 August 2020, in a socially-distanced outdoor event in Islington.

The programme for the concert is Haydn's String Quartet in C major, Opus 20, No. 2 from a set of quartets published in 1772 and seen as some of Haydn's finest quartets, Mozart's String Quartet No. 12 in B flat, from a set published in 1773 and seen as being very influenced by Haydn's Opus 20 quartets, and Beethoven's String Quartet in A major Opus 18, No. 5, from his first set of string quartets published in Vienna in 1801 and still very much influenced by Mozart.

The Corran Quartet is a young group, consisting of one Portuguese player and three Scots, and they had been planning a complete Beethoven quartet cycle for 2020.

Tickets for the event are bookable via email, see the poster above.
