Haydn String Quartet in G major, Op.76 No.1 21’

Janáček String Quartet No.1 in E minor Kreutzer Sonata 18’

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

Formed last year at the Royal Northern College of Music, the Atesh Quartet has already won multiple prizes and awards both collectively and individually. Its programme embraces the first quartet from Haydn's final set of six – and a quartet from Beethoven's first set of six, composed four years later at the dawn of the nineteenth century.

Janáček's programmatic quartet was inspired by Tolstoy's novella and reflected his identification with the subject of a heroine, married to an unworthy husband; she has an affair with a stronger man, resulting in murder by the rejected husband.
