LCMS Foyer Concert: Bernadel Quartet - Sunday 27th October, 5:45pm

Haydn – opus 76 no 3 ‘Emperor’
Bartok – Quartet no. 2 opus 17

William Melvin (violin); Cassandra Hamilton (violin);  Richard Waters (viola); Abigail Hyde-Smith (cello)

First prize winners at the Royal Greenwich Intercollegiate string quartet competition, the Bernadel Quartet was formed in 2009 at the Royal Academy of Music. Recent performances have included recitals in the Wigmore Hall, the new Arts Centre in Buxton, Colston Hall, St James’ Piccadilly, and at various venues in Cornwall. They are to be Cavatina Chamber music fellows at the Royal Academy of Music for the academic year 2013-2014 as well as one of three mentorship groups supported by ChamberStudio in 2013-2014.  Their programme this evening links closely to the Martinu Quartet’s programme with Olga Vinokur. Bartok and Martinu were direct contemporaries, both hailing from Eastern Europe, and their second string quartets heard this evening were composed within a few years of each other. Joseph Haydn, whose ‘Emperor’ quartet opens this evening’s foyer performance, was a great friend of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, inspiring much of Mozart’s own quartet writing.
