About Chamber Music at The Drake - February Concert

After their previous sell out Drake appearance drawing on folk and jazz influences, the Drake quartet return with a programme of contemporary music and Nordic folk tunes.

This concert is an exciting mix of Swedish folk tunes played alongside contemporary music.;

Joby Talbot: String Quartet no2

Karin Rehnqvist: The Riddle

(A mysterious piece full of unusual sound effects being passed on from one instrument to another leading to a folklore inspired dance.)

Wojciech Kilar: Orawa (1986) originally a piece written for a string orchestra and only transcribed for quartet in 2018. It is Inspired by the Polish highland folk and the beautiful Tatra Mountain landscapes. Those influences reveal themselves in beautiful open harmonies juxtaposed with rough rhythms and accents.

In the second half of the concert, the quartet will delve into the Danish String Quartet's Wood Works album of Nordic folk music. Returning to this beautifully arranged collection in greater depth, listeners can expect Reels, Polskas, wistful traditional melodies and a cheeky Schottis.

Players will be:
Kirsty Orton and Helena Zambrano Quispe - violins
Shelagh McKail - Viola
Jessica Kerr- Cello

These initimate concerts present chamber music in a setting that gives audience member a rare opportunity to be very present with the musiciand and their music.
