Albion Quartet

Beethoven String Quartet in A Op. 18 No 5 (26’)
Freya Waley-Cohen Dust (new work) (15’)
Walton String Quartet No. 2 in A minor (30’)

This opening concert brilliantly demonstrates what’s in store for our 76th Festival. The Albion Quartet, made up of four outstanding young string players, kicks off our Beethoven 250 celebrations and the beginning of our new Festival strand RePlay. Beethoven’s early quartet, full of youthful, brilliance, contrasts with Walton’s lyrical and beautiful work which owes much to Beethoven’s later music. Freya Waley Cohen’s Dust was premiered at the Aldeburgh Festival in June last year.

Pittville Pump Room

Pittville Pump Room is an elegant Grade 1 listed Regency building and perhaps the most famous example of Regency architecture in Cheltenham. Standing in regal splendour at one end of Pittville Park, the Pump Room is a monument to more than 100 years of fame that Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town.

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