Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival 2018

  • The Bridges Centre Monmouth Wales (map)

What happens when great music is played by new instrumental combinations? Three famous masterpieces are presented in unfamiliar versions in this programme. Each piece has a different story: Dimitri Sitkovetsky arranged Bach’s Goldberg Variations, a keyboard work, for string trio in the late twentieth century. Beethoven himself re-scored his piano sonata for string quartet, and Brahms’s string quintet in F minor is an early version of a work that would later find its place, via a second version for two pianos, as his mighty piano quintet. 

Beethoven string quartet in F, op. 14 no 1
Florence Cooke, Tim Crawford, Hannah Shaw, Victoria Simonsen

Brahms String Quintet in F minor, op. 34
