Pre-concert Foyer performance: Aomori String Quartet - Sunday 4th May, 5.45pm

JS Bach Contrapunctus 1, 4, 5, 9 and 11 from The Art of Fugue
Haydn String Quartet No. 5 in A, Op. 20

Rebecca Smith violin
Hugh Blogg violin
Lucy Nolan viola
Chris Terepin cello

The Aomori Quartet came together especially for 2012’s International Academy of String Quartets at Aldeburgh, studying for ten days with the Kopelman Quartet. Since then, the quartet has enjoyed learning from many different musicians, including Christoph Richter as part of ECMA in Manchester, James Boyd as part of Chamber Studio at Kings Place, and more recently Susan Tomes at the Marryat Chamber Players concerts in Wimbledon. In 2013, the quartet performed at various concert series and festivals across the country, including at the RNCM Beethoven Festival, and at Magdalen College Oxford. Recently, the Aomori Quartet has enjoyed studying Bach’s Art of Fuguewith Prof. Laurence Dreyfus, with concerts to come programmed alongside Hadyn’s Op. 20 in A major.

The Aomori Quartet are excited to precede tonight’s concert given by the Badke Quartet. Both Haydn and Beethoven successfully inherited contrapuntal writing skills, and took fugal writing, as so beautifully crafted by Bach in his Art of Fugue, through to the next generation.
