The Cremona Quartet perform at Northern Ireland's Moving on Music Festival in the Town Hall, Bangor. This imposing building in Co. Down is the castle which was built for Robert Edward Ward and his family in 1852 but is now the headquarters of North Down Borough Council. Its Music Room is now the council chamber. Cristiano Gualco and Paolo Andreoli, violins, Simone Gramaglia, viola, and Giovanni Scaglione, cello, bring music back into the chamber with performances of Beethoven's Quartet Op 18 No. 6 in B flat, La Malinconia - the final quartet in the set that paid homage to the traditions of Haydn and Mozart - and Debussy's Quartet in G minor - the work that looks forward to the new musical language that characterised Debussy's music.
