NCO Soloists at Spring Bank Arts Centre

November 4, 2017

A feature in every NCO season is the regular appearance of the principal players as the NCO Soloists. In this concert, our leader and Artistic Director, Nicholas Ward, presents a performance of two towering pieces in the string quartet repertoire; Mozart’s Dissonance Quartet, with a sublime opening reminiscent of the beginning of Haydn’s Creation, and the late, great Schubert G Major Quartet D. 887. IN between these two mighty works is the shortest but one of the most effective quartets by Shostakovich, his 7th string quartet.

 

Nicholas Ward and Simon Gilks violins, Richard Muncey, viola and Jennifer Langridge, cello
