Beethoven String Quartet in D major, Op.18 No.3 24'

Shostakovich String Quartet No.14 in F sharp major, Op.142 26'

Dvořák String Sextet in A major, Op.48 32'

In our final 'Quartets Plus' concert we hear another Op.18 quartet (see also here and here) before Shostakovich's penultimate quartet, written in 1973 after 18 months' creative silence due to his second heart attack. We close with the work which first established Dvořák's international reputation, thanks in no small part to its championing by his friend Joseph Joachim. On the fourteenth day of our festival, reflect that it took Dvořák just this long to write it…

LDSM Patrons and Benefactors are also invited to a Meet the Artists buffet lunch in Ambleside Parish Centre after the concert. To take advantage of Priority Booking for our 2014 Festival, or for more details on the benefits of becoming a Patron, click here.

Vogler Quartet

The Vogler Quartet, still featuring its four original members, was founded in 1985 and has secured a place for itself among the world’s top chamber music ensembles, thanks to its great individual and joint skills. It was the Quartet‘s sensational success at the 1986 string quartet competition in Evian, France, where they won several prizes, that set the four musicians on the path to a great international career, since which they have performed on nearly all the major international concert platforms.

Yuko Inoue

Winner of the 17th Budapest International Viola Competition, Yuko Inoue has performed as soloist throughout Europe and Japan with many orchestras, including the Hungarian State Philharmonic Orchestra, Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, the Hallé Orchestra and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and with such eminent musicians as Gidon Kremer, Sir Charles Groves, György Pauk, Jean-Jacques Kantorow, Heinrich Schiff and Thomas Zehetmair.

Harro Ruijsenaars

Harro Ruijsenaars was the principal solo cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, a position he relinquished to concentrate on his solo career and to take up professorships at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark and the Music Department of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, teaching chamber music and cello. From 1998 until 2002 he was Guest Professor at the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels. After finishing his professorship in Denmark in 2001, he started teaching at the masters programme of the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.
