STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

Nic Fallowfield and Jenny Curtis and their Tedesca colleagues Richard Muncey and Clare Bhabra, once again bring their innovative approach to Group Quartets, sitting and playing within the group and approaching everything as large-scale chamber music. Individual responsibility and initiative are encouraged, as is discussion on musical issues, rehearsal techniques and so on. This is emphatically NOT a string orchestra! This time we will be working on Beethoven’s String Quartet Op 18 No 4 in C minor and Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No 1, Op 11. On the Wednesday the Tedesca Quartet will give a recital to include these two pieces and also the String Quartet No 7 by Martinu. As usual, we ask you to bring your own parts and to number the bars before you come. The first complete bar counts as bar 1 and ‘first time only’ bars at the end of repeated sections should not be taken into account in your calculations.
