THE HENSCHEL String Quartet returns to Leamington on Friday October 5 to open the seventh Leamington Music winter concerts season.
The programme for the concert at Leamington's Pump Rooms consists of Haydn’s Quartet Opus 33 No 3 nicknamed The Bird and Beethoven’s Quartets Opus 18 No 6 and Opus 59 No 2.
The Henschel Quartet - which last played in Leamington in 2009 - has visited the United Kingdom many times and regularly tours America, Australia and the Far East.
In 2010 the Quartet performed to the Pope in the Vatican and in March of this year played for the fourth time to the Spanish Royal Family, using their set of Stradivarius’s. In June of this year, the Henschel Quartet performed the complete cycle of Beethoven quartets in Tokyo, the first time for 20 years that a European quartet had done this there.
The Leamington Music International String Quartet series continues on November 9 with the Maggini Quartet, and on November 30 with the Revolutionary Drawing Room which will be joined by the clarinettist Colin Lawson. In the New Year, concerts will be given by the Carducci Quartet, the Skampa Quartet from the Czech Republic and the Brentano Quartet from USA.
Tickets for all concerts are available now online at www.bridgehousetheatre.co.uk or by calling 01926 776438.
They are also available in person at the Visitors Information Centre at the Pump Rooms.
