Clock18.30 Sunday, 6th October 2013

LCMS Foyer Concert: Valido String Quartet - Sunday 6th October, 5.45pm

Haydn – String Quartet op.76 no.5
Beethoven – Selections from String Quartet op.18 no.1.

Julia Loucks (violin); Nuno Carapina (violin); Joseph Fisher (viola); Davina Shum (cello)

 

The Valido String Quartet is formed of Nuno Carapina, Julia Loucks (violins), Joseph Fisher (viola) and Davina Shum (cello) who are all members of Southbank Sinfonia2013, Britain’s premier orchestral academy.  An international ensemble, its members hail from Britain, Portugal, Canada and New Zealand, where they have each forged successful careers as recitalists and chamber and orchestral musicians.  As members of Southbank Sinfonia, they have had extensive chamber music performance experience including performances at the Crush Room, Royal Opera House; the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre; the Royal Albert Hall and the Anghiari Festival in Italy.
Tonight’s programme will showcase string quartets from two highly influential composers of the genre: Haydn and Beethoven; Haydn is considered “the godfather” of string quartets who subsequently influenced Beethoven in his compositions.  No doubt Schubert would have looked to these two figures for inspiration in his string quartets – and indeed Schubert was a pallbearer at Beethoven’s funeral.
