Victoria String Quartet
Saturday, March 4, 2023 - 7:45 pm

Named after the venue of their first concert - the historic Victoria Baths in Manchester - the Victoria String Quartet started life in 2017 with David Greed, Leader of the Orchestra of Opera North, and distinguished staff of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Borodin Quartet 2
Puccini Cristantemi
Schubert A major (Rosamunde)

The musicians have selected particularly lush and melodic music that will appeal to lovers of both classical and more popular music. Fans of show tunes, easy listening, opera, jazz and swing will find familiar melodies amongst beautiful classical music for string quartet. Much of the programme has been reworked into other pieces, and some of the melodies have been famously recorded by artists including Frank Sinatra, Katherine Jenkins and Dionne Warwick.
