International quartets

Four quartets, from Schubert to Hosokawa

In this series of international quartets – featuring famous string ensembles, such as Diotima and Brodsky, and ensembles built around renowned violinists, such as Liza Ferschtman and Baiba Skride – strings are central. Folk influences are never far away. In his work, Hosokawa integrated Japanese folk instruments such as the shō, a traditional mouth organ. Bartók, Brahms and Enescu drew their inspiration from Hungarian and Romanian gypsy music. British composers Elgar and Britten also combined old and new elements to create their own musical language.
