The Sacconi Quartet are joined by two of this country’s finest chamber musicians – violist Simon Rowland-Jones (Chilingirian Quartet) and cellist David Waterman (Endellion Quartet) – in a glorious programme of string music. Beginning with Strauss’ sumptuous Sextet from his opera Capriccio, and culminating in Brahms’ ever popular B flat Sextet,
the programme also features a first for Leeds – the northern premiere of Simon Rowland-Jones’ second string quintet, written for the Sacconis last year and delighting audiences wherever it is performed.
The award-winning Sacconi Quartet is recognised for its unanimous and compelling ensemble, consistently communicating with a fresh and imaginative approach. Formed in 2001, its four founder members continue to demonstrate a shared
passion for string quartet repertoire, infectiously reaching out to audiences with their energy and enthusiasm. The Quartet have enjoyed a highly successful international career, performing regularly throughout Europe, at London’s major venues, in recordings and on radio broadcasts.
