October 7: Edinburgh, Queen’s Hall
October 9: City Halls, Glasgow
The Edinburgh quartet are a tight & sophisticated unit, & to hear them project notes into the perfect pearly acoustic curves of the Queen’s Hall was an absolute delight. We were presented with three pieces; the 29-year-old Beethoven’s SQ (18-3), the late-in-life Britten’s SQ (3) & Dvorak’s SQ in E flat major.
Every nuance of every piece was played with passion, precision & sensuality, & cannt wait until the next time I get to bathe in the mind-bath that is the playing of the Edinburgh Quartet.
