Music from the Calder Quartet. Mozart: String Quartet in C, K465. Ades: Arcadiana. Norman: ...toward sunrise and the prime of light... Mendelssohn: String Quartet in F minor.

The dynamic and experimental Calder Quartet from Los Angeles are equally at home playing sold-out rock gigs as they are working at the highest level in classical music and are the preferred quartet for many leading composers today. They have collaborated on several projects over the years with Thomas Adès and here perform his set of miniatures 'Arcadiana' written in 1994 and inspired by various idyllic seascapes, rivers and pastoral scenes as well as championing a new work by the young American composer Andrew Norman. These works are contrasted with two of greatest works written for string quartet by Mozart and Mendelssohn.The concert is presented by Mary Ann Kennedy.
