Event details

A series of concerts organised in conjunctions with the Turner Sims.

The Takacs Quartet programme will include Debussy's Quartet in G minor. The onset of the Great War had a great effect on Debussy, leading him to stop composing for a time.  Whilst he returned to composition during the war, he included the words ‘musicien français' under his name on some works to reinforce his sense of national pride.  His death in 1918 from cancer came during the last German bombardment of Paris.

Full programme

Haydn Quartet in B flat major, Op 64 No 3
Debussy Quartet in G minor, Op 10
Beethoven Quartet Op 59 No 2 Razumovsky
