Donald Grant (arr.): Suite of Scottish Folk Tunes
Sally Beamish: New Work Robert Schumann: String Quartet in A minor, Opus 41 No 1
Franz Schubert: String Quartet No.13 in A minor, D.804 (Rosamunde)

This young British quartet, an advocate for new works and standard repertoire, makes its first appearance for us. The group plays an arrangement of Scottish folk tunes, and a new work by English composer Sally Beamish. Adding a touch of Romanticism, the group will perform music by Robert Schumann (Op 41 No 1) and Franz Schubert’s lyrical “Rosamunde” quartet.
