Van Kuijk Quartet

String Quartet in D, Op.76 No.5
György Ligeti
String Quartet No.1, 'Métamorphoses Nocturnes'
String Quartet, 'Death and the Maiden'

When the Van Kuijk Quartet swept the board at the 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition, critics praised their ‘style, energy and sense of risk’ – exactly the qualities you’d want in a performance of Schubert’s huge, stormy ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet. But they’re just as fearless in Ligeti’s shimmering, fantastical First Quartet, and they start with Haydn’s gloriously mellow Op.76 No.5: the definitive test of great quartet playing. Make no mistake: they’ll pass with flying colours!

‘These four young Frenchmen made the music smile.’
