The Brodsky Quartet's spirited and virtuosic artistry has ensured them a place at the very forefront of the international chamber music scene. This programme opens with Schubert’s ‘Quartettsatz’. Written in 1820 this is a work in a single movement with a real ebb and flow of tension throughout. Shostakovich’s String Quartet No 3 demonstrates his full powers as a chamber music composer, skilfully deploying the string quartet to express his utterly distinctive musical personality. End the evening by being drawn into the Quartet’s passionate exploration of the monumental late Beethoven quartet: Opus 132, with its deeply spiritual essence.

Since their formation in 1972, the Brodsky Quartet have given over 3000 concerts and released more than 60 recordings. Sharing their energy and craftsmanship with the next generation, they are currently International Fellows of Chamber Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Pre-Concert Talk in Palmerston North: The pre-concert talk is free to attend and takes place at the venue 45 minutes prior to the concert. The talk will be run by a local music specialist and provides a great opportunity to learn more about the artists and the music, before experiencing it live.
