MENDELSSOHN String Quartet in D, Op.44 No.1
GRIEG String Quartet No.1, Op.87
Beginning with two well-known string quartets by Mozart and Mendelssohn, the Doric will then transport us to less familiar territory with the less often heard, sole complete quartet by Edvard Grieg, which the composer characterised as “a slice out of my own life,” and seems at the same time to conjure up the majestic scenery of his home country, Norway.
Within minutes after the end of the triumphant sold-out 2019 appearance in Holkham, plans were being made to invite the Doric String Quartet back to Norfolk in 2020. This will be the sixteenth consecutive year they have appeared in north Norfolk.
They are now firmly established as one of the leading quartets of their generation with many performances around the world
During the 2019/2020 season they will give three concerts at Wigmore Hall, in Germany, Switzerland and at the biennial quartet festival in Amsterdam. They will make their annual tour to the USA with performances in Phildadelphia, Washington DC, at Duke University in North Carolina, Dallas and California and make a return visit to Carnegie Hall. They will play at The Maltings, Snape in
June. This season they will give several performances with the violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cedric Tiberghien.
They will also add Haydn’s Op.33 quartets to their already extensive discography.
