ST CLEMENT DANES AT LUNCH
Bacewicz Quartet for Four Violins
Gipps Seascape
Maconchy String Quartet No.13
Dobrinka Tabakova On Colour
‘On Colour’ could be an apt title for this entire concert, in which varying chamber ensembles reflect many different shades of the last 70 years. All four composers should be better known: Bacewicz never committed an idle note to paper, and Four Violins makes for a quartet of leaders, all eager to shine. Equally arresting is Maconchy’s final quartet which, in its short span, distils a lifelong fascination with the form. Changing tides flow through Tabakova and Gipps’ miniatures, each a tiny kaleidoscope full of swirling instrumental colours.

This concert is free with no ticket required.
