Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

BBC New Generation Artists the Escher Quartet play two innovative string quartets by Hugh Wood and Debussy.

Written as a young man by one of this season's featured composers, Debussy's early string quartet is a forward-looking work with its sensual colours and improvisatory feel. It's paired with the 4th String Quartet by Hugh Wood, a work recently selected for 'Encore' - a partneship scheme between the Royal Philharmonic Society and BBC Radio 3 - designed to give repeat performances of notable contemporary chamber compositions.
