Described as being ‘simply world-class’ by Opera Magazine, the NCO has established a reputation as one of the leading chamber orchestras in the country. A feature in every NCO season is the regular appearance of the orchestra’s principal players as the NCO Soloists. We are delighted to say that we have been asked to return to the wonderful Sandbach Concert Series and in this concert, Nicholas Ward, the orchestra’s Artistic Director and 1st violin in the string quartet, presents a delightfully varied programme that includes Debussy’s String Quartet, a piece so rich in rhythm and melody, a movement of one of the greatest of all quartets, Schubert’s posthumously published G major and Shostakovich’s 7th quartet, which despite being his shortest work in this genre, makes up for it with writing that is dense, powerful and at time poignant.
