In the first of the Chilis two concerts (see also Fri 12th) we continue our 'Mozart Quartets Plus' strand (see also Fri 5th and Fri 12th) and bring another work from the glorious year of 1788 (see also the Mozart piano trios on Thu 4th and Sun 7th and the Divertimento on Mon 1st). The central work is a rarity unearthed by Levon Chilingirian: the British composer Edgar Bainton wrote his A major Quartet in 1919 following his wartime experiences in the Ruhleben internment camp, where his colleagues and compatriots included Benjamin Dale, featured in last year's festival.

We dedicate this concert to the memory of Derrick Johnson, a long-time supporter of LDSM and a member of the Council of Management under Keith Scott.
