Programme Information

Please note: 

The Doric String Quartet will now be joined by second violinist Ying Xue for their concert date in Sheffield, which also means one change to the previously published programme. 

They will be performing Beethoven's String Quartet in B flat Op.130 (with the 'Grosse Fuge' ending) instead of the String Quartet in C sharp minor Op.131 as previously advertised.

HAYDN String Quartet No.1 in B minor Op.33
BARTÓK String Quartet No.5
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in B flat Op.130 (with the 'Grosse Fuge' ending) 

“These were performances of terrific panache and perception, seeming to get right under the skin of Haydn’s creative genius.” The Daily Telegraph

The Doric Quartet enjoys an annual touring programme that traverses the globe. Following their recent debut at New York’s Carnegie Hall, their busy autumn and spring schedule takes them to Germany, Holland, France and back to the USA.

The Doric’s performance opens with an effervescent Haydn quartet, dedicated to Grand Duke Paul of Russia. Beethoven’s late quartets stand at the pinnacle of classical chamber music and, anecdotally, the Opus 131 quartet in C sharp minor was the composer’s own favourite. In Bartók’s striking Fifth quartet the composer’s love of Hungarian folk music is immediately apparent.
