Quatuor Danel Evening Concert (25th February)

Shostakovich String Quartet No. 3 in F, Op. 73
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 4 in D, Op. 83
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 5 in B flat, Op. 92

Three masterpieces, leading to the first pinnacle of Shostakovich’s string output: No. 3 moves from playful energy, through extremes of violence and lament, to a questioning conclusion; No. 4 adds folk- and Klezmer-derived idioms to the mix; No. 5 combines symphonic scale and range with cryptic personal messages.

Quatuor Danel Afternoon Concert (26th February)

Shostakovich String Quartet No. 6 in G, Op. 101
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 7 in F sharp minor, Op. 108
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 in C minor, Op. 110
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 9 in E flat, Op. 117

In the post-Stalin era Shostakovich makes a fresh start in deceptively straightforward but profoundly touching tones. His first two minor-mode quartets take us to cryptic self-examination. Finally the colossal five-movement Ninth traces a complex journey back to hard-won jubilation.

Quatuor Danel Evening Concert (26th February)

Shostakovich     String Quartet No. 10 in A flat, Op. 118

Shostakovich     String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 122

Shostakovich     String Quartet No. 12 in D flat, Op. 133

Shostakovich starts to ponder his legacy and the possibility of a cycle of 24 quartets in all the different keys. The classically structured, tensely dramatic Tenth is followed by the seven-movement, sardonic Eleventh, and the two-movement, expansive Twelfth, which explores twelve-note rows and extremes of contemplation and energy.

Quatuor Danel Afternoon Concert (27th February)

Shostakovich String Quartet No. 13 in B flat minor, Op. 138
Shostakovich String Quartet No.14 in F sharp, Op. 142
Shostakovich String Quartet No.15 in E flat minor, Op. 144

The darkest of the dark. The one-movement Thirteenth Quartet is tormented by intimations of death and ends in a scream of pain; the Fourteenth is suffused with lyricism but acknowledges that it comes from a lost world; the six slow movements of No. 15 end the cycle by staring into the void.

Quatuor Danel Evening Concert (25th March)

Lera Auerbach  String Quartet No. 5 ‘Song of Alkonost’ (UK premiere)
Steve Reich      Different Trains
Tchaikovsky     String Quartet No. 3 in E flat minor, Op. 30

A 2011 string quartet by Russian-born American Lera Auerbach, inspired by a mythical woman-headed
bird, precedes a masterpiece by American minimalist Steve Reich commemorating the trains that took the
Jews to Auschwitz. And the Danels’ season concludes with Tchaikovsky’s passionately eloquent Third
Quartet.
