Event description

Description

Doric Quartet
The Doric Quartet has firmly established itself as a leading British quartet of its generation. Charismatic, commanding performances and eloquent recordings of the complete Schumann and Korngold quartets explain Gramophone's description of the group: “musicians with fascinating things to say.” They perform Beethoven’s op. 130 with its original finale, the still avant-garde Grosse Fuge.
