Marking this year's Polish theme, in a concert given in St. Andrew's Church, the Cavaleri Quartet's programme brings together Henryk Gorecki's vivid, folk-influenced String Quartet, Op.62 and a lesser known gem among Beethoven's String Quartets, his Op.74.

Henryk Gorecki: String Quartet no.1, Op.62 "Already it is Dusk"
James MacMillan: Memento
Beethoven: String Quartet in E flat, Op.74 "Harp".
