Details

Enjoy chamber music in the perfect setting of the Marble Hall at Holkham.
Chiaroscuro Quartet
Alina Ibragimova and Pablo Hernan Benedi violin, Emilie Hörnlund viola, Claire Thirion cello

Programme:
Haydn: String Quartet in E flat Opus 33 No. 2 ‘The Joke’
Fanny Mendelssohn: String Quartet in E flat
Beethoven: String Quartet in B flat Opus 130 (with Finale)

The quartet was formed in 2005 by the internationally acclaimed Russian violinist, Alina Ibragimova, together with Pablo Hernan Benedi from Spain, Emilie Hörnlund from Sweden and Claire Thirion from France. The quartet plays music from the classical and romantic periods on instruments set up in the authentic classical way, with gut strings, and they use classical, as opposed to modern, bows.

Highlights of their 2019 season include a tour of the USA, featuring a concert at Carnegie Hall, and tours of Canada, Japan and China. Their CD of two quartets by Schubert, including Death and the Maiden, was voted CD of the Week on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Building a Library’ in November 2018.

It will be fascinating to see how the Chiaroscuro Quartet shine their historically informed light on two standard repertory works by Haydn and Beethoven, as well as to hear Mendelssohn’s beloved sister’s charming and beautiful solitary string quartet.
