Sunday Sundown concert
5th March 2023
This week: Listen to Her - Women by Women, performed by Hanover Square Quartet.

They are one of the few UK string quartets playing on gut strings, championing the works of female composers.

This particular programme juxtaposes Mayer's quartet with a movement from the more famous Schubert "Death and the Maiden". They also pair Hensel's E minor quartet with a movement by her more famous brother (Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream). The overlap between their musical styles, including direct quotes, is astonishing. It is clear that they were very close and had tremendous respect for each other as composers.

All Sunday Sundown concerts have free admission with a retiring collection for the musicians unless otherwise specified.
