The Carducci String Quartet is one of the country’s foremost quartets, performing around 90 concerts every year in major venues and festivals throughout the country and beyond. They won the prestigious Philharmonic Society Award in 2016 and have their own annual festival in Gloucestershire.
Their extensive plans to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year in 2020 were postponed due to the pandemic, so they are particularly looking forward to performing a belated tribute in Parbold with his Fourth String Quartet alongside Shostakovich’s masterpiece, the Quartet No.9, and the popular American Quartet of Dvořák.
