From Cadogan Hall, London

The Signum Quartet and Christian Ihle Hadland live at the BBC Proms with a quartet by Elizabeth Maconchy, and Brahms's evergreen Piano Quintet

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Maconchy: String Quartet No. 3
Brahms: Piano Quintet in F minor

Signum Quartet
Christian Ihle Hadland (piano)

Nearly 21 years after her death, Elizabeth Maconchy remains one of 20th-century Britain's most alluring forgotten voices. International in outlook, she wrote music of great lyricism and subtlety, closer to the soundworld of central Europe than the English musical establishment. Today Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Signum Quartet perform Maconchy's Bartok-influenced String Quartet No 3, before joining forces with fellow NGA, Norwegian pianist Christian Ihle Hadland, for Brahms's evergreen Piano Quintet.
