NCO Soloists in Manchester

October 6, 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.
