Matlock Music’s 2021/2022 season continues on Friday 25th March with a concert given by the Wihan String Quartet, described by International Record Review as one of the best quartets in the world today. The quartet was founded over 35 years ago at the Prague Academy of Musical Arts and is currently in residence at the Trinity College of Music in London. The ensemble has performed at major festivals in Europe and the Far East and toured extensively in the United States, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. They are frequent visitors to the UK and can often be heard on BBC Radio 3 as well as in concert at Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall and the South Bank. The group has drawn particular acclaim for its performances and recordings of works by Dvorak and Janacek.
They will perform Janacek’s String Quartet No 2 (Intimate Letters), Verdi’s String Quartet in E minor, Cavatina from Beethoven’s String Quartet No 13 Op. 130 and Dvorak’s String Quartet in F Op. 96 (American).
