Wheel of 4Tunes – Brodsky Quartet
Wednesday 7th February 2018, 8:00 pm
A unique concert for all the family by a great string quartet! The four-piece programme will be created from a selection of 40 of the Brodsky Quartet’s favourite pieces by spinning a wheel before each is played. The music will all be kept at the quartet’s feet throughout the concert and each piece will be picked out as it is selected.
Featuring anything from Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven to Britten, Elgar and Mendelssohn as well as a selection of pieces written in the past 40 years, the musicians will also discuss each piece before it is performed, inviting questions from the audience. A relaxed atmosphere and an opportunity to get to know the Brodskys!
