Schubert — String Quartet No 13 (Rosamunde)
Schubert — String Quintet (The Trout)

The quartet known as the Rosamunde is one of Schubert’s later quartets, written in 1824. The development of his quartet writing is much in evidence here; the music for each member of the quartet is equally important and characterful. In the early quartets, most of the important melodic interest had been given to the first violin. The later quartets also have a greater structural integrity with themes. Harmonies and textures recur throughout the four movements, tying the whole work together. Both the Rosamunde and Schubert’s Trout Quintet feature examples of Schubert using references from his song catalogue in other areas of his work.

“What an incredible team will be joining me for this concert! Watch out, the Elias Quartet can reduce you to tears if you’re not careful, as I can testify from their stunning performances at our Solent Music Festival. The double bass player and broadcaster Chi-Chi Nwanoku needs no introduction. The first time I heard Chi-Chi was at the Royal Festival Hall with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. It was as if she was the engine of the orchestra – such incredible rhythm and energy. She now has her own ensemble: Chineke Orchestra.” Sam Haywood — Artistic Director.
