About this event
Debussy’s early quartet already reaches into the future with its sensual colour and improvisatory tone. The fourth of Hugh Wood’s five works in the form is a masterly four-movement piece: music of passion and closely wrought integrity, it was recently selected for Encore – a scheme run by the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3 designed to give repeat performances and broadcasts of works by living British composers.
The Escher Quartet is a current member of BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme.
