‘The chemistry between these four young players is tangible and magical’ — The Scotsman 

Championing new music and experimenting with the quartet repertoire has become part of the Sacconi Quartet’s trademark style.  

With their fresh and imaginative approach to chamber music, the Sacconi Quartet will perform alongside lutenist Matthew Wadsworth. 

Their programme will feature an incredibly wide range of composers including 17th– century Purcell, the celestial soundscapes of Jamaican-born British composer Alberga’s Quartet No.2 and Beethoven’s Quartet No.16. In between, audiences can enjoy Welsh composer Stephen Goss’ ground-breaking new 21st Century concerto for theorbo and strings, for a performance not to be missed.
