Lipatti Piano Quartet

The wonderful artists of the prestigious Park Lane Group present a selection of lieder and song, including music by British composers Elgar, Lord Berners and Peter Dickinson, as well as Haydn’s Canzonettas or ‘English Songs’, composed during his visit to England, mostly to texts by Anne Hunter. This is framed by two major works of the piano quartet repertoire – Mozart’s beautiful second Piano Quartet, and Fauré’s first, inextricably entwined in his stormy relationship with Marianne Vuardot in the late 1870s.

Formed in September 2018, the Brompton Quartet is comprised of musicians from the UK, Austria and Slovenia, studying at the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music in London. Although they have only been playing together for a few months, they have already worked with artists including Daniel Rowland (Brodsky Quartet), Mats Zitterqvist (Chamber Orchestra of Europe), Mark Messenger, Rafael Todes (Allegri Quartet), Richard Lester, Jon Thorne and the Harlem and Marmen quartets.

All four members of the group are also active orchestral musicians and soloists, and have participated in festivals including the St. Endellion Festival, Prussia Cove, and Padova and Stift International Music Festival. Prizes won by individual members of the group include 1st prize at the 13th Concorso Internazionale per Giovani Strumentisti, 3rd prize and the special Szymanowski award at the 1stInternational Karol Szymanowski Competition in Katowice, Poland, and 1st prize at the 1st International Tartini Competition, Cambridge University Instrumental Award, and the Inaugural Peterhouse Camerata Musica chamber music prize. They recently participated in the Swiss Chamber Academy in Geneva, where they had the unique opportunity to work closely with Heinz Holliger.

The Brompton Quartet is now excited to continue working on a diverse range of new repertoire and to perform as much as possible in the coming year – they look forward to upcoming recitals in and around London and the UK. Most recently, they were delighted to have won the 2019 St Martin in the Fields Chamber Music Competition, and to have been awarded the 2019 Boconnoc Award and residency in Cornwall.

Composed in 1918, Edward Elgar’s String Quartet, Op. 83, was one of his final major works, alongside the Violin Sonata, Cello Concerto and Piano Quintet.

The quartet is a recent discovery for us, and we have fallen in love with the work; we will be presenting it at a number of venues this year, including Leith Hill Place, St Stephen’s Festival, Charlton House and The Red House, Aldeburgh. We were conscious of reflecting the strong presence of British composers in this evening’s concert, and feel that it will set the atmosphere for the programme to follow.
