The Doric String Quartet has firmly established itself as the leading British string quartet of its generation, receiving enthusiastic responses from audiences and critics across the globe. Selected for representation by the Young Classical Artists Trust in 2006, the Quartet went on to win several prizes including 1st prize at the 2008 Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, 2nd prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy and the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany.

The Quartet performs in leading concert halls throughout Europe and is a regular visitor to the Wigmore Hall. In 2010 the Quartet made its highly acclaimed American debut with recitals in New York and Washington DC, and now returns for annual tours to North America. The Quartet also has a busy festival schedule.

Making its second appearance at Malvern Concert Club, the Quartet opens tonight with Thomas Adès’ The Four Quarters, a programmatic work in four movements that depict the flow of a day, offering a wide range of mood and texture. Of the Doric’s Haydn, the Sunday Telegraph said, ‘Haydn and the Doric are a perfect match …. Unequivocally, these were performances of terrific panache and perception, seeming to get right under the skin of Haydn’s creative genius.’ Tonight’s concert ends with Mendelssohn’s tragic and moving final work, written as a homage to his sister Fanny who had died a few months earlier.

 

Ticket price includes a £1 contribution to our heritage fund.
