Tippett Quartet

The Tippett Quartet's performances are little short of astonishing…’ The Strad

One of Britain’s finest quartets offering a programme which includes the two most famous quartets of Mozart and Schubert. These are complemented by a performance of Vice-President John McCabe’s recent seventh quartet. As Anthony Burton wrote recently about the work in BBC Music Magazine ‘…it holds in balance the lyrical and the propulsive, the declamatory and the intimate, before dissolving into ‘a gentle summer sky at dusk’.’

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Quartet No 19 in C Major K465 Dissonance

John McCabe – Quartet No 7 Summer eves

Franz Schubert – Quartet No 14 Death and the Maiden

John Mills – violin

Jeremy Isaac – violin
Lydia Lowndes-Northcott – viola

Bozidar Vukotic – cello
