Bill & Lesley Watson
Haydn String Quartet in E flat Major, Op.64 No.6
Mendelssohn String Quartet No.6 in F Minor, Op.80
The programme pairs a brilliant example of a Haydn string quartet with Mendelssohn’s late work, which is imbued with yearning and grief at the death of his sister.
The Hill Quartet are an innovative, multi-national chamber ensemble based in London. With strong roots in the classical world, they hold a deep interest in expanding the string quartet repertoire by curating, commissioning and performing cross-genre art forms and contemporary music.
Currently the Royal Academy of Music Chamber Fellows, the 2021/22 season has seen them appear at the Music@Malling, Rye Arts and North York Moors Chamber Music Festivals. Upcoming appearances include a chamber music residency at Snape Maltings as part of the Britten Pears Young Artists Programme and concerts at the Yeovil, Kings Lynn and West Cork Chamber Music Festivals. In September 2022 they will begin a three year Artist-in-Residence position at Wolfson College, Oxford University.
The concert will be followed by a light tea.
