Navarra Quartet, Schubert Ensemble

The Navarra Quartet play Haydn's String Quartet in E flat, Op 9 No 2, at the Machynlleth Festival and the Schubert Ensemble perform Schubert's Trout Quintet at the Gower Festival.

This week's concerts are from festivals held in the Gower Peninsula and the picturesque mid-Wales market-town of Machynlleth. Every August since 1986, the Tabernacle in Machynlleth has been home to an international music festival. Today the Navarra Quartet perform the second of Haydn's Opus 9 quartets. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016, Gower Festival takes place a month earlier, in churches spread across an area that boasts one of Wales' most spectacular landscapes. Recorded at All Saints in Oystermouth, the Schubert Ensemble perform Schubert's Trout Quintet.
