The Ebene Quartet performs at Wigmore Hall in London. Mozart: String Quartet, K465 (Dissonance). Schubert: String Quartet, D804 (Rosamunde). Tchaikovsky: String Quartet No 1.

Presented by Martin Handley.

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

The Ebène Quartet - former Radio 3 New Generation Artists - play Mozart's String Quartet in C K465 'Dissonance', Schubert's Quartet in A minor D804 'Rosamunde' and Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1 in D Op. 11.

Mozart's Quartet No. 19 in C major is the last in a series of six quartets dedicated to Joseph Haydn, and gained its nickname 'Dissonance' on account of its slow, mysterious introduction. Schubert's Quartet No. 13 in A minor, the 'Rosamunde' is another favourite of the string repertoire. Its second movement saw Schubert re-work incidental music originally written for the play 'Rosamunde'. Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No. 1 in D premiered in Moscow in 1871, the famous second movement is said to have moved Leo Tolstoy to tears.
