Announcing autumn 2021 concerts!

Saturday 16th October
7:30pm
Yellow House Labs Concert
Girton, Cambridge
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 11 in F minor
Beethoven Op. 18, No. 4

Join the Cambridge String Quartet for an intimate performance of Beethoven and Shostakovich at a private home in Girton on Saturday 16 October at 7:30pm. 

Using classical-period bows and informed by recent discoveries in historical performance, the CSQ will offer a fresh new take on the dramatic and well-loved string quartet Opus 18 No 4 in c minor. Switching to modern bows, the quartet will explore the sombre, wintry depths of Shostakovich’s Quartet Nr. 11 in f minor. Each piece will be preceded by an informal discussion and members of the Quartet will be available at the George Pub (next door) after the concert for further conversations.

The Cambridge String Quartet was founded in 2020 to offer a world-class ensemble embedded within the Cambridge community. Its members, Paula Muldoon, Dr. Rachel Stroud, Monica Cragg, and Joshua Lynch, have performed and recorded internationally with some of the world’s greatest ensembles and are united in their desire to share their love of the string quartet repertoire with everyone in Cambridge.

Tickets for the event are £18 general admission and £15 for Friends of the quartet. Booking is limited to Friends only until Sunday 3 October and seating is limited to 20 so why not sign up to become a friend for as little as £5/month and get your tickets sooner! Covid restrictions will be in force to ensure safety of participants.
