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.
Hugh Wood: String Quartet No 4
Debussy: String Quartet
This concert will be repeated on Saturday 25th August at 2pm.
