Fitzwilliam String Quartet

Programme

SHOSTAKOVICH Quartet Movement in Eb major ‘Unfinished Quartet’
MOZART String Quartet No. 19 in C major, K. 465 ‘Dissonance’
SHOSTAKOVICH Two Pieces for String Quartet: Elegy & Polka
HAYDN String Quartet in D major, Op. 50 No. 6 ‘The Frog’

Having made its debut performance in 1969, the Fitzwilliam is now one of the longest established string quartets in the world. One of many highlights in its fifty year journey was a close personal association with Dmitri Shostakovich and a central role in championing his works; the great composer himself described the Fitzwilliams as his, “preferred performers of my quartets”.

The quartet’s virtuosic programme for The Stoller Hall includes two works by Shostakovich himself, alongside one of Mozart’s most celebrated compositions in the genre and Haydn’s witty and energetic ‘The Frog’.
