The famous Carducci Quartet perform one of the most popular and melodic of Haydn’s quartets, No. 4 from the Op. 20 set with its ravishingly beautiful slow movement and Hungarian-inspired minuet movement, and follow it with Mendelssohn’s passionate and stormy last quartet in F minor.

The Quartet is then joined by the celebrated pianist Reiko Fujisawa in Schumann’s ever-popular Quintet for piano and strings, ‘preludised’ by Liszt’s arrangement of Schumann’s beautiful ‘Widmung’ (‘Dedication’) from the Myrthen song collection.

The Salomé Quartet is a multinational ensemble formed in 2016 by four prizewinning students of the Royal College of Music in London: Haim Choi (South Korea), Ines Delgado (Portugal), Kasia Ziminska (Poland) and Shizuku Tatsuno (Japan). The musicians have performed worldwide in venues including Muzikverein (Vienna), Mozarteum (Salzburg), Unesco Hall (Paris), Lutoslawski Concert Studio (Warsaw), Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall in London, and continue to appear together at major concert venues throughout the UK. In 2017 the quartet won the RCM String Quartet Competition, Helen Just & Susan Cornell Prize and the Sacconi Quartet Prize and became artists in residency at the Oundle School.
The group is working under the tutelage of Mark Messenger, with the generous support of the Stanbridge Drake Brockman Award, Douglas and Hilda Simmonds Award and the Orpheus Award.

Mozart’s string Quartet in D major k575, one of the “Prussian” quartets, were written in the style of Joseph Haydn for the court of Freidrich Wilhelm the 3rd, who was an amateur cellist.

Both Schubert and Schumann have a vast repertoire of lieder as well as chamber music. Schubert’s lieder writing specifically developed his chamber music writing and visions of sonata form, and because of this,  he was a great influence on later Romantic composers such as Schumann and Brahms.
