Sacconi Quartet

7:30pm Morpeth Methodist Church

Morpeth Music Society present the Sacconi Quartet

The Sacconi Quartet has now been playing in its original line up for nearly two decades!  The quartet is named after a twentieth century violin maker and restorer, Simone Fernando Sacconi - and three of the musicians play original Sacconi instruments.  The Sacconi Festival in Folkestone is now in its twelfth year and the ensemble is Quartet in Association at the Royal College of Music.

A typical Haydn quartet opens our concert, followed by Helen Grime's quartet as a complete change of style.  Helen is a contemporary Scottish composer and this is her first work for string quartet.  Rachmaninov's 'Romance' is a fragment of the composer's first foray into quartet writing before we hear the Beethoven dating from just prior to his late string quartets.

  • Haydn Quartet No. 53 in D major Op. 64 No 5 'The Lark'
  • Helen Grime Quartet
  • Rachmaninov Quartet No. 1 'Romance'
  • Beethoven Quartet No. 11 in F minor Op. 95 'Serioso'

Tickets (!6) will be available both on-line and in person from the church and Morpeth Tourist Information Centre). Any remaining tickets will be available on the door.
