String Dimensions String Quartet
Stockbridge Town Hall
An exciting newly formed string quartet made up of internationally renowned soloists.
Stockbridge Music is privileged to be hosting the world premiere of this quartet led by Bogdan Vacarescu. Allegri Quartet cellist Vanessa Lucas-Smith, Akiko Ishikawa (violin), Brook Day (violin) are the other members. They are united by a mutual interest in performing music all too rarely heard in today's concert programmes, such as works by Fritz Kreisler, Cherubini and Enescu to name but a few.
One week later in London on 17th February they will be performing the same programme again for their London debut. Their programme will include a UK premiere of a work by Bazzini. They will also be performing works by Kreisler and Greig which, to my knowledge, have not been heard before in any Stockbridge Music concerts.
This concert is sponsored by a member of Stockbridge Music who congratulates SM on bringing this string quartet to Stockbridge.
