One of the world’s finest string quartets will launch Milngavie Music Club’s new International Concert Season next month.
The renowned Quartetto Di Cremona from Italy will give the club’s opening concert on Friday, October 10 at 7.30pm in Cairns Church.
The group has wowed audiences and critics in prestigious musical centres around the globe with the refinement and excitement of their playing.
The quartet will be making their first visit to Scotland and well-known Glasgow music critic Michael Tumelty recently hailed the prospect of their coming concerts as ‘ a terrific piece of news for lovers of chamber music’. Their acclaimed recordings of Beethoven’s string quartets have brought superlative reviews from critics world-wide.
The quartet’s programme at Cairns Church begins with the elegant freshness of music by Haydn’s contemporary Boccherini and ends with Beethoven’s great Quartet in C sharp minor, Op 131. Between these, they’ll present the raw emotion and visceral excitement of Shostakovich, and a short piece by one of the leading Italian composers of today.
A season ticket (seven concerts) costs only £58 (full time students £25).
Single tickets: £12 (full time students £5, children free) are available from Milngavie Bookshop and The Iron Chef, Milngavie or at the door on the night; for further enquiries telephone 0141 942 3102 or check out the website: www.milngaviemusic.org
