Overview

Fitzwilliam Quartet

JS Bach Three Contrapuncti from The Art of Fugue
Alan Mills Rococo Variations & Fugue on a theme of CPE Bach (premiere)
Glazunov Novelleten, Op. 15 (excerpts)
Schubert String Quartet in D minor, D.810 Death & the Maiden

The Fitzwilliam Quartet presents a fascinating programme starting with a fugal theme. Three Contrapuncti by JS Bach serve as a prelude to the premiere of a new quartet by Alan Mills: variations on a minuet for keyboard composed by Bach’s eldest son Emanuel Bach in 1766, and ending with a fugue.

This is followed by some of Glazunov’s beautiful Novelleten, beginning with the fugal movement ‘Interludium in modo antico’. The Quartet’s programme culminates in Schubert’s dramatic and epic late quartet ‘Death & the Maiden’, named after his earlier lieder ‘Der Tod und das Mädchen’ from which he freely draws.
