Wigmore Hall: Brodsky Quartet
The Brodsky Quartet in a live recital from the Wigmore Hall in London. Beethoven: String Quartet in F minor, Op 95 (Serioso). Britten: String Quartet No 2 in C, Op 36.
Today's Wigmore Hall Lunchtime concert features the Brodsky Quartet in a programme of Beethoven and Britten. Beethoven's Op.95 combines the lyricism of the middle period quartets with the forward-thinking qualities of the late quartets. Then it's Britten looking back to Purcell in his String Quartet no.2, containing a magnificent 'chacony' in homage.
Presented by Sarah Walker.
