Important Information: Artist Change
Unfortunately, due to ever-changing circumstances beyond our control, we’re no longer able to welcome Marmen Quartet for this concert. We are delighted to be able to present Quartetto Noûs, who have prepared an alternative programme of work for what promises to be an equally enjoyable evening.
Bazzini String Quartet in C minor No.5 Op.80
Mendelssohn String Quartet in A minor No.2 Op.13
Shostakovich No.3 Op.73
The versatility and the interpretative originality of the ensemble appear in the quartet’s whole repertoire and the attention to the new compositional languages drive it to experiment with innovative concert formats like performing by heart in complete darkness. It has worked with several contemporary composers and took part in many cross-cutting projects with renowned theatre and dance companies.
Noûs (nùs) is a Greek word whose meaning is ‘mind’, and thence ‘rationality’, but also ‘inspiration’ and ‘creativity’.
