Berlin’s Kuss Quartet is ranked amongst the world’s best ensembles, with a unique approach to music-making born of personal discoveries and passion for experimentation. Their visit to Manchester brings Chetham’s quartet cycle to a resounding close.

Shostakovich’s Ninth Quartet (1964) is bright with ecstatic energy and influenced by jazz and klezmer. Darker times come to the fore in the elegiac Quartet No. 11 (1966), featuring a prominent first violin in memory of Vasili Shirinsky.
