String quartet to provide little teatime music

10/03/14

Enjoy a free teatime performance by the Edinburgh Quartet, at 5.30pm tomorrow [Tuesday 11 March] at the Cowdray Hall, Schoolhill, Aberdeen.

Like the Lunchbreak concerts, the Rush Hour performances aim to invite the audience to take time out of their busy day to unwind.

The chamber ensemble will perform Quartet Death and the Maiden by Schubert during the 45-minute show.

Founded in 1960, Edinburgh Quartet is one of Britain's foremost chamber ensembles, appearing regularly at prestigious venues across the country including London's Wigmore Hall and The South Bank Centre.

The Quartet achieved international recognition after winning the Contemporary Prize at the Evian-les-Bains String Quartet Competition and has toured extensively across Europe, the Far East, North and South America and the Middle East.

Deirdre Grant, head of public programmes at Aberdeen Art Gallery said: "This is our second Rush Hour concert of the season, providing a perfect opportunity to beat the traffic, relax and enjoy the music of one of Britain's foremost chamber ensembles.

"By the time the 45-minute show has finished the rush hour traffic will have eased in time for the audience to head home."
