The Southwell String Quartet (David Wood, Catharine Lester, Andrew Chadwick and Margaret Chadwick) return to explore the beginnings of the Classical and Romantic eras of quartet writing. They trace the journey of the string quartet from its origins with Alessandro Scarlatti in early eighteenth-century Italy, through Moravia and Joseph Haydn’s Austria, to the Leipzig and Berlin of Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn, ending with the young Sergei Rachmaninoff’s rare and rediscovered string quartet movements, composed towards the end of the nineteenth century.
