Quatuor van Kuijk
Schubert Quartet in A minor D 804, ‘Rosamunde’ 40’ **
Mendelssohn Octet in E flat, Op. 20 33’
Described by the composer himself as the ‘favourite of all my compositions’, Mendelssohn’s Octet is a symphony in all but name, written for two string quartets. Sophisticated, large scale and yet also intimate, he composed it at just 16 years of age. Following a performance of Schubert’s hauntingly melancholy ‘Rosamunde’ quartet, the Armida Quartet will be joined by another rising-star ensemble from the BBC New Generation Artists series, Quatuor van Kuijk, for Mendelssohn’s masterpiece.
Recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3

The Festival’s morning recitals at the Pump Room are its continuing glory
