Escher String Quartet

Founded in 1933 by sisters Gwendoline and Margaret Davies, the Gregynog Festival has earned a reputation for bringing the finest musicians of the day to its idyllic countryside location in mid-Wales. As part of the 2011 festival, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Escher Quartet pick up the festival's theme of 'gold' with music by two synaesthetes, their rich musical palettes intimately bound up with their perceptions of colour.
