Come and hear the prize-winning Doric String Quartet on Tuesday 13 September as they perform the first concert of our Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 Celebrity Series. This will be the Quartet's first visit to The Menuhin Hall and we are really looking forward to hearing this dynamic young ensemble perform such an interesting and wide-ranging programme:
Haydn: Quartet in D Op 64 No 5 'Lark'
Bartόk: String Quartet No 4
Schubert: Quartettsatz D703
Debussy: String Quartet in G minor Op 10
The Doric String Quartet has firmly established itself as the leading British string quartet of its generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the globe. Selected for representation by YCAT in 2006, the Quartet went on to win several prizes including 1st prize at the 2008 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, 2nd prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy and the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany.
Since 2010 the Quartet has recorded exclusively for Chandos Records. The first CD, the complete Korngold String Quartets, was featured as one of the 2010 Critic’s Choice discs in Gramophone and was followed by a CD of the Walton String Quartets which was nominated for a 2011 Gramophone Award. The Quartet’s release of the Schumann String Quartets was named CD of the Month in both Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine and was shortlisted for a 2012 Gramophone Award. Their most recent releases of Haydn’s Op 20 Quartets and Quartets by Janáček and Martinů have both gathered enthusiastic reviews across the board, with the Haydn disc being named Editor’s Choice by Gramophone and shortlisted for a 2015 Gramophone Award.
