Dudok Quartet Amsterdam are set for the stage, as BBC Proms comes to the Concert Room of St George’s Hall this summer!
We’re living in a new golden age of string-quartet playing, and the Dudok Quartet of Amsterdam is in its vanguard – four superb young players who believe chamber music is an act of friendship, and that anything this good deserves to be shared.
Never afraid to explore beyond the standard repertoire, today the Dudoks champion Doreen Carwithen’s windswept Second Quartet of 1950, alongside one of the gentle giants of the 19th-century repertoire: the big-hearted masterpiece that Brahms wrote as a gift for his great friend, the Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim.
With interpreters as imaginative as these, it’ll sound more vibrant than ever in the magnificent surroundings of Liverpool’s St George’s Hall.
This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and will also be available on BBC Sounds.
BBC Proms comes to St George’s Hall Liverpool on Monday 22 August at 1.00pm.
- Carwithen: String Quartet No. 2
- Brahms: String Quartet in A minor, Op. 51 No. 2
Performed by Dudok Quartet Amsterdam.
