Belcea Quartet

The Belcea Quartet returns to Wigmore Hall to perform quartets by two Czech composers - Dvorak and Janacek. Complementing Dvorak's String Quartet in Eb major, Op.51, Wigmore favourites the Belcea Quartet play Janacek's emotionally charged String Quartet No.2, known as "intimate letters" which was inspired by his unrequited love for a much younger and married woman - Kamila Stösslová. The concert is presented live from Wigmore Hall by Suzy Klein
