Cambridge String Quartet at Yellow House Labs
A Summer Soirée
Quartet in f minor, Op 1 no 3 by Hyacinthe Jadin (1776-1800)
The Martian by Paula Muldoon (b. 1986), world premiere
Quartet no 1 in B-flat major by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
Saturday 11 June at 6pm
Join the Cambridge String Quartet as they celebrate the return of violist Monica Cragg with music by Jadin, Muldoon, and Haydn at a private home in Girton on Saturday 11 June at 6pm. Jadin’s dark f minor quartet contrasts nicely with Haydn’s jolly first quartet. First violinist Paula Muldoon’s work The Martian, inspired by the Mars Perseverance Rover landing, will also receive its world premiere. The evening will have the Quartet’s usual blend of humour and joy, and promises to be a fun evening for music lovers of any genre.
Join the members of the Quartet at The George in Girton after the concert for a drink and Thai food.
